Mayor plans a five-borough farewell tour
Today, Mayor Michael Bloomberg revealed how the administration plans to highlight his legacy during his final 15 days in office.
In a memo entitled "T-Minus 15 Days" sent to administration allies both inside and outside of City Hall, Howard Wolfson, Bloomberg's deputy mayor for government affairs, unveiled a new website detailing the progress the city has made under the outgoing mayor and said that "starting tomorrow the Mayor will visit each of the five boroughs over the next five days to highlight key Administration initiatives and success from throughout the last 12 years."
"These events will highlight areas like parks, economic development, education, immigration, technology, transportation, infrastructure, livable cities, housing, crime, public health and the arts," the memo, which was just released to the press, goes on. "Wednesday he will give a major speech – his last as Mayor – at the Economic Club on the rise of American cities, the strategies needed to continue urban progress and the threats cities face."
"We look forward to serving you for the next 15 days and thank you for your interest," Wolfson concludes.
