TLC Commissioner resigns after slurring words, berating employees in virtual meeting 

On Wednesday afternoon, a commissioner for the New York City Tax and Limousine Commission resigned after she began slurring her words and berating and threatening employees during a virtual work meeting.

The recordings, which were obtained by NBC New York, show Aloysee Heredia Jarmoszuk on a Microsoft Teams meeting talking to fellow workers. 

“Someone is messing around with mute and don’t think I won’t figure it out who it is. I will f—–g come for you,” Heredia Jarmoszuk can be heard on the recording while speaking to employees. During the call, when an employee asked a question about working holidays, Heredia Jarmoszuk responded to that worker and said they need to “workit out with your supervisor. But don’t, like, b—h and complain about it because that’s not helpful to any of us.” 

Heredia Jarmoszuk later told the others on the call “don’t come to me with your nyeh-nyeh-nyehs, complaining about little things, because I can complain about everything that’s happening in my life at work, all day every day.”

Although it was not immediately clear the timing of when the virtual meeting was held, a spokesperson for Mayor Eric Adams said the administration had been made aware of the incident last week. “We have conducted an internal review and will be accepting her resignation,” said the spokesperson.

The resignation signals the first cabinet-level staff departure of Adams’ administration, which has only been in office for a little over two months.

“As TLC Commissioner and Chair, I was proud to lead an Agency full of dedicated employees who want to effect positive change – both within the agency and on the industry – and I am proud of our results. I pushed my team as hard as I pushed myself and I will be the first to admit that I should have found a more constructive way to express my expectations to them during the video call – I was wrong and I am sorry,” Heredia Jarmoszuk remarked in a statement. “This is certainly something that I will learn and grow from as I move forward.”
