What Bill de Blasio Achieved In 1 Year Took Many Years For Others To Formulate
A year has passed since the Mayor of New York City Bill de Blasio won the mandate from his voters. When he joined office, he had made it abundantly clear that the city was going to see better days under his governance. As he had said during his inauguration, “We are called to put an end to economic and social inequalities that threaten to unravel the city we love, and so today, we commit to a new progressive direction in New York.”
First Year Littered With Significant Achievements
Other than promising all this, de Blasio had wrestled out state funding for universal prekindergarten. He forced a majority of employees to provide sick pay, and told luxury developers to set aside more units for affordable housing. In spite of all this, the latest face-off with the New York Police Department may force all his good work to go down the drain. What he now needs is to get to a quick resolve so thathe can go on with making life easier for commoncitizens.
De Blasio First Democrat Mayor To Embrace A Liberal Stance
The mayor is a liberal who believes in expanded governments. However, that has set alarm bells ringing in the business community,many of whom see their money being spent on his various policies. He believes in income equality, though that is definitely a utopian concept. Nevertheless, he has been praised for his thoughts even by some of his opponents like Republican Joe Lhota. However, after a constructive one year, the chokehold death controversy of Eric Garner and his support for protestors threatens to break down his achievements. The police department is against him– in fact, is clearly hostile to him. He needs tothink of something quickly that can resolve to the problem to ensure that he has a hassle free second year in Office.
