City Hall did not explain why the mayor canceled his meetings in D.C., the Times reported. “The mayor is returning to New York City to address a matter,” Lutvak said in an email when asked why Adams was returning. “These meetings will be rescheduled as soon as possible.” Suggs is thoroughly involved in advancing the mayor’s agenda and has raised more than $2.5 million for his 2025 re-election campaign, the Times reported. His campaign paid Suggs’ company, Suggs Solutions, nearly $100,000 for her fundraising and consulting services, according to the Times. She’s also a registered lobbyist. In 2022, a real estate concern hired Suggs, through an intermediary, to lobby Adams’ office and the New York City Council on the firm’s behalf. Striving for a Better New York, a political action committee that pledges support to state candidates aligned with Adams, also paid Suggs about $100,000, the Times reported. Adams’ first mayoral campaign paid her more than $50,000, according to the Times. Suggs also served as an aide to Adams when he was Brooklyn borough president. The New York Post reported she has a close relationship with Ingrid Lewis-Martin, the mayor’s chief adviser.
