Mayor Eric Adams appoints former teacher to kill rats

MICHEL MARTIN, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Michel Martin. You might want to put down your breakfast sandwich for a minute because we're going to be talking rats here - New York City rats.

(SOUNDBITE OF ARCHIVED RECORDING)

JESSICA TISCH: The rats don't run this city. We do.

MARTIN: But the rats kind of do. So the city has appointed its first rat czar. New York City Mayor Eric Adams gave Kathleen Corradi, a former school teacher, the job. Formerly, she's the director of rodent migration. She'll try to curb the growing critter population. But Adams got straight to the point.
