Iam very disturbed about recent reports of e-mails sent or forwarded by you that contain racist and sexist depictions and remarks, Asa landlord doing business with the State of New York, I expect you to conduct yourself in a professional manner. The lack of respect these e-mails show for the rights of minorities and women is of great concern to me both as Commissioner and asa citizen of this State. Your recent actions cause me to request that you voluntarily withdraw from the pending Workers’ Compensation lease. Sincerely, ie Egan John C. Egan
