Kathleen Corradi has officially been appointed New York City's first 'rat czar' - tasked with controlling the ever-growing population of rodents running wild through the Big Apple.
Mayor Eric Adams made an official public announcement of the appointment, after 900 people applied for the $155,000-per year position.
“Rat mitigation is more than a quality-of-life issue for New Yorkers,” Corradi said in her welcome speech. "As the first director of rodent mitigation, I’m excited to bring a science- and systems-based approach to fight rats."
