After receiving the names of over 20,000 people supporting your call for an investigation of the questions raised in The Real Rudy: Radios, New York City Councilman Eric Gioa pledged:
"I will do everything in my power to get answers, to get the truth. There needs to be accountability."
Councilman Gioia chairs the Oversight and Investigations Committee of the New York City Council. With his support, we can hold Giuliani accountable for his failure to equip firefighters with radios that could have saved lives on 9/11, and get answers to these questions:
- Why was nothing done to improve FDNY radio performance for seven years after a clear need was demonstrated in the 1993 World Trade Center attack?
- When new radios were finally ordered, why did the city award a contract to Motorola without a competitive bidding process?
- Once Motorola was given the contract, why did its cost jump from $1.4 million to $14 million?
- Why were these new radios never field tested?
