WYSK: Kudos To Mayor Bill de Blasio

By Senator Rev. Rubén Díaz

Kudos to Mayor Bill de Blasio

You should know that I believe that we should give credit where credit is due, and because of that, I’m giving kudos to New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and his Administration for doing a pretty good job with the blizzard that hit New York City this weekend.It is important for you to know that I am never one to hold back my criticism of Mayor Bill de Blasio and his Administration when I feel it is important, but fair is fair.  I will not hold back my words of appreciation for him when it is equally fair to do so.

Even though the National Weather Service had been announcing the pending blizzard for a week, giving everyone time to prepare, and even though the storm was not expected to hit until the weekend, when many people did not have to go to work or school, the Mayor used his time and resources to help the City of New York to be well prepared so people would be safe.

Mayor de Blasio issued a travel advisory before the storm, and a travel ban during the storm, due to the heavy snow and damaging winds. He held several press conferences throughout the weekend, with his key advisors and Commissioners by his side, keeping New Yorkers well-informed.

The Department of Sanitation and the Department of Transportation worked very hard before the blizzard to be sure the bridges and roads were salted. Even though there are some areas that still need attention, Sanitation crews are working round the clock to be sure that our streets are plowed and safe for travel.

This was one of the worst snowstorms New York City has ever seen, and I would like to publicly congratulate our Mayor Bill de Blasio and his Administration for doing a good job. Kudos to you, Mr. Mayor!

I am Senator Reverend Rubén Díaz, and this is what you should know.
