Tired Of Mayor Already

Dear Editor:

In his short time as Mayor of NY City, Bill de Blasio has made some very troublesome decisions. He failed to realize his wife was not elected along with him. She should not have two highly paid spokespeople, and her notfor profit organization should be monitored closely. His decision to do away with some charter schools that will hurt children seeking a better education is wrong. Under him the Build it Back Program has come to a complete halt. This money is from the government for the people greatly affected by super storm Sandy. There are only 26,000 applicants, of which some people have probably already given up and dropped out. But his most controversial movehas to be abandoning the legal battle being fought between the Vulcan society, which represents black firefighters and the city he runs.

The court of appeals made a ruling which would have led you to believe that the City had a chance of defeating the lawsuit filed by the Vulcans. You would think that the $98 million dollars awarded was coming out of the mayor's pocket. The other disturbing fact of this lawsuit is the trickledown effect it will have on non-minority applicants. Does this mean smarter, better applicants will be passed over if they are not black? He is also allowing special treatment by assigning black graduates to their neighborhood firehouses. The Mayor is setting a dangerous precedent here. Being called former Mayor de Blasio cannot come fast enough.
