Mike Bloomberg pushed a tsunami of community crushing development -- way too fast and reckless....
Read the article....the author is dazzled by Mike (so what is new -- his money seems to hypnotizes people) but the reviewer....not a fan.
From the last paragraph...
"....the mayor might want to start by extricating the city from the fiscal hole he has dug for it." Fred Siegel author of the article....
Hey Fred, Mike bought a third term so that is his punishment and as far as I am concerned it is not good enough.
I posted this comment:
Someone told me to read this piece because the author's reference to a "tsunami of expenditures" sounded like my words. I have been saying for years Bloomberg pushed a tsunami of community crushing development. My first YouTube, "Mayor Bloomberg King of New York was last year in response to the fiasco with term limits. I also painted a portrait of Mike with a small grin and an oversized crown with red, white and blue gems and transformed the portrait in to a political poster asking "Is democracy for sale? No Third Term". Bloomberg is going to win and his punishment for denying us a referendum is the third term. I am glad Fred Siegel is not dazzled by Bloomberg and his wealth. On my poster above Mike Bloomberg's shoulders, it says "Principum Amicitias!". I borrowed these words from the newly discovered Shakespeare portrait. Many New York voters may not know the translation but they share the feeling. Mike will win but I predict with the lowest amount of votes and put that in context of the record amount of money he spent. Thanks for publishing this book review. Siegel paints an accurate portrait.
