This Week In Politics: An Unexpected Storm

Saturday, February 15, 2014

Mayor de Blasio (NYC Mayor's Office)

Mayor Bill de Blasio was surprised by the cold this week. His pre-k plan is getting an icy push back from Governor Cuomo, reporters are grilling him at length, his Schools Chancellor is being mocked for saying "it's a beautiful day" in the middle of a sleet storm, and even weatherman Al Roker "predicted" a one-term mayoralty.

And, oh yes, he unveiled his first budget and delivered his first State of the City address.

WNYC's Andrea Bernstein, Beth Fertig, and Brigid Bergin break it all down.
