The man responsible for destroying New York City is setting his sights on DC… Former Big Apple Mayor Bill de Blasio announced Friday he is officially running for Congress.
“I’m very proud of having led this city out of the worst of the COVID crisis,” de Blasio told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “I’m ready right now to serve and address the issues that are so deep in communities in Brooklyn and Manhattan, and I just wanted to come here, a place that I cherish, and with you who have been such good friends to tell you this is the next step and I want to serve the people of the community that is my home and that I love.”
“I failed to give New Yorkers a clear sense of where I was taking them. I lost my connection with the people because I mistook real policy for real popularity. I let a focus on individual initiatives, no matter how noble or substantive, distract me from offering an overarching vision for the future,” he said in the Atlantic op-ed towards the end of his tenure.
“When it comes to being unpopular, I’m unfortunately somewhat of an expert. I made my fair share of mistakes,” he explained.
