Well after 12 years of looking at a lizard, we have finally a handsome mayor to look at. Let's hope he's a good mayor. I supported him strongly but then so too did I support OhBummer the first time around. Yikes!! Good luck Bill de Blasio, stay on track.

DeBlasio is on CPT, hence the lateness.

I hope that Deblasio learns to be more succinct.
