Bloodthirsty and with a killer instinct: New York has its first anti-rat super sheriff, and she’s a woman. Mayor Eric Adams, for whom the fight against rats is one of three pillars for improving the quality of life in the metropolis, has appointed Kathleen Corradi, a former elementary school teacher, to lead the task force charged with exterminating the millions of rodents that infest New York.
Four months ago, the town hall had published an announcement, looking for a suitable person for the new position, and 900 candidates presented themselves. “Bloodthirsty” and “with murderous instincts to fight a prolific and tireless enemy” were two of the necessary qualifications for the job.
Corradi, in her role as a teacher, worked to exterminate rats from the schools of the metropolis. “The job is made for her,” admitted Adams, a former police officer. In January, the mayor was fined for the third time for the presence of rodents in his Brooklyn.
The problem is longstanding for the city, with as many rats as residents in its five boroughs, and Charles Dickens already complained about their presence when he visited the city in 1842. Other mayors, from Rudy Giuliani to Bill de Blasio, they tried to eradicate them, but Corradi is the first person in the new role.
With a salary of 155,000 dollars per year, he will coordinate the activities of the various competent departments, those of health and urban sanitation, to achieve the goal.
