Mayor Bill de Blasio has just become the 109th mayor of New York City by taking the Oath of Office administered by Attorney General Eric Schneiderman on January 1.
I would like to wish de Blasio good luck and success in his current administration.
Now I would like to praise Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who has kept our city in financial good shape, and Police Commissioner Ray Kelly and the NYPD, who have kept the crime rate low.
As such, I hope our new mayor keeps our city financially secure and safe. As a proud New Yorker, my wish is that we all live long and prosper under our new mayor.
