The Only Republican Mayoral Candidate Fernando Mateo kicks off a 5-BOROUGH BUSINESS TOUR TOPICS: NY VILLAIN ACT and Release of JOBS & SAFETY AGENDA

NEW YORK – May 12, 2021: In reply to the passage of the NY HERO Act (better known as the “NY VILLAIN Act”) which exposes businesses to legal liabilities related to COVID-19 along with onerous requirements that increase expenses to operate, the ONLY Republican candidate for New York City Mayor Fernando Mateo is convening businesses in each of the 5 Boroughs to discuss (i) growing threats to small business and (ii) outline his “Jobs & Safety Agenda” to save New York City. Also, a special discussion on the potential of "COVID workplace testing" will take place featuring a National Laboratory group based out of Brooklyn. The first "Mateo Business Roundtable" will be held at 10:00 AM on Thursday, May 13th at “The Omonia Café” in Bay Ridge located at 7612 3rd Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11209 and the establishment’s phone number is 718-491-1435. Approximately 15 Brooklyn business leaders are confirmed to attend.


DATE: Thursday, May 13, 2021 TIME: 10:00 AM WHO: Republican NYC Mayoral candidate Fernando Mateo WHAT: 5 Borough Business Roundtable Tour TOPICS: NY VILLAIN ACT + Release of Mateo's "Jobs & Safety Agenda" to Save NYC WHERE: Omonia Café in Bay Ridge ADDRESS: 7612 3rd Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11209 LOCATION WEBSITE: https://omoniacafe.com/bayridge/ LOCATION PHONE: 718-491-1435

NOTE : The Omonia Cafe in Bay Ridge was selected because it recently invested hundreds of thousands of dollars renovating their establishment. Now that investment, plus countless NYC businesses – large and small – are at extreme risk of being lost due to the NY Villain Act. GOING FORWARD: Each “Mateo Business Roundtable” will be held on Thursdays at 10:00 am with more stops being planned. Advisories will be issued to notify of the next location in advance. Portions of the event may be livestreamed using @MateotheMayor on Facebook, Instagram, or other social media platforms. QUOTE: Below is a quote from Mateo’s statement on the NY Villain Act issued on May 6, 2021:

“The Radical Left is fulfilling their nightmare vision for a jobless and joyless New York,” said Mateo. “As Mayor, I will not enforce Communist regulations that will put American businesses out of business,” Mateo made clear.
