He's right about income disparity and this mayor. The mayor is against raising minimum wages stopped the Armory jobs in the Bronx a number of years ago because they wanted better jobs with better salaries than the mayor was willing to agree to for the businesses he wanted in that venue. He's been good for the rich as Mr. De Blasio says and that's where it ends. Even real estate development has favored the rich particularly in Manhattan and Brooklyn.

Brian I think it's time to have the first round for Comptroller and Mayoral candidate debates or interviews with ALL the Mayoral candidates this month through August.

Civil disobedience should be used whenever democracy isn't working? Hmmm, then it should be going on daily and everywhere in this country these days, no?
