New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is on the hot seat after it was reported that he worked less than 7 hours in one month for the City of New York. New Yorkers are furious with de Blasio for skipping out on running the nation’s largest city.
“He don’t do nothing for New York…what’s he going to do for the United States?” Bronx resident Sharae Little
He’s been on the campaign trail trying to become the next POTUS in 2020. He’s polling at zero percent, so it’s not likely he’ll stay in the race. Detractors say he’s traveling around campaigning to skip the daily work involved in being mayor.
The New York Post reported that de Blasio showed up at his office on just six occasions in May, taking part in two meetings, four events, and five phone calls, one of which was his weekly appearance on WNYC radio, according to entries on his official calendar. The 11 appointments amounted to a meager one-fifth of the 50 meetings, calls and other events at City Hall on de Blasio’s calendar for May 2019. He had a total of 152 city events scheduled for the month.
A fed-up New Yorker Jason Selvig put up “Missing” posters around midtown Manhattan late last month with the mayor’s image.
“Have you seen this man? New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio,” the poster read, along with a description of his age, height, and weight.
“Last seen embarrassing himself in Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina,” it continued. “If seen please tell him to immediately return to New York and do the job he was elected to do.”
The posters asked anyone with “information about this man’s whereabouts” to email [email protected]
