Bloomberg's Q&A: Non-Partisan Elections
Monday, August 02, 2010 - 05:31 PM
Michael Bloomberg bristled at a question about whether he recommended the City Charter Revision hire a city analyst who previously produced a report on the benefits of non-partisan elections.
“I just told you, I read about it in the papers,” Bloomberg says around the 8-minute mark. “How could I have recommended her if I didn’t even know about it?”
Bloomberg goes on to say that elections in the city right now “Is not democracy as the founding fathers envisioned it.”
