Candidates' Visions for Post-Sandy New York Look Much Like Bloomberg's

Wednesday, July 03, 2013

Here’s a campaign oddity: Democratic candidates running for mayor who by-and-large agree that many of Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s ideas on a particular subject are good ones.

The subject, in this case, is what to do to make New York City more resilient in the face of storms like Sandy and other climate change threats.

Even some candidates who have criticized Bloomberg for how he responded to Sandy say they generally like the plans he outlined in June to protect the city."I see some real differences with the way he handles issues of fairness towards the outer boroughs. I think there's a host of critiques," said Public Advocate Bill de Blasio, a Democrat, at a recent candidates' forum in Brighton Beach, Brooklyn. "But I think when it comes to the broad strokes of his recovery plan, there is a lot I agree with."
