New York City Mayor Eric Adams says he won’t stop talking about crime, pushing back on criticism that he helped fuel the momentum of Republican candidates across the state in the midterm elections.

“I’m trying to say the system is broken, and no one wanted to hear that,” Adams said at a Thursday briefing to announce a sanitation initiative. “I will continue to talk about that until we get it right.”
