Thank God we have TV cameras and the internet so that everyone can see the true nature of politicians and hopefully dangerous thugs like Michael Grimm can be whisked into the garbage can of history where they belong.

Its good to see union leadership higher on the list. Hopefully New York City will become a leader in recreating the labor movement and help rebuild the middle class and reduce inequality.

Wherer is the comment about our local corporate conflicts of interest with regard to the proliferation of charter schools, private education "consultants/contractors" such as Murdoch, Bloomberg & other testing profiteers???

Unions are important and should have power because they represent workers -- both municipal and private. Without unions the lower-middle class, blue collar, and working poor of this city wouldn't have the money or the voice in city matters that they do now.

Yes conflicted over unions. They're like men, you can't live with 'em and can't live without 'em!

Ah, hmmh, too much power in New York City. Wow, that's tough. Maybe, finance and real estate. I realize that statement is pretty controversial, but I think I stand by it.
