Who wants to put words in Bloomberg’s mouth?
Michael Bloomberg's team is looking for an additional speechwriter, according to an email sent this afternoon from his top speechwriter, Francis Barry.
Bloomberg is known for sticking to the script at major events, reading his comments on either a teleprompter or on his iPad. Whoever gets the job will have to deal with the mayor's demanding schedule and Massachusetts accent.
Here's the email, forwarded to me by a reader.

My apologies for the mass email, but we have an opening on the
speechwriting team here at City Hall, and we are casting a wide net.
If you know someone who may be interested, and who has a talent for
turning a phrase, please spread the word.
Resumes can be sent to email@example.com (Salary
