Election 2010: Voters weary of Mayor Bloomberg

October 20, 2010

Maybe it wasn’t a good idea for New York City Mayor Micheal Bloomberg to  run for three terms.  It seems many New Yorkers are becoming weary of his tenure  in office as some recent polls show. City voters are oppose to him running for president, as well as, for  another  four-year term .

Congressman Anthony Weiner, former NYC Comptroller Bill Thompson , Comptroller John Liu etc., anyone but Bloomberg  voters would prefer  in Gracie Mansion. And as a man with no political party  affiliation since switching back and forth what future is there for the billionaire mayor?

“That’s according to a Marist College poll out today that finds 64 percent of city voters are opposed to the idea of  Bloomberg running for president. Twenty-six percent support the idea and 10 percent are unsure,” posted on the Capital Tonight blog.

Some predicate retiring to his vacation home in the Bahamas to work on his golf skills those playing with him complaining he’s   better at cruising the streets in his golf cart  around  the island looking like a golfer  instead of a real one.

And the Mayor would no longer have to pay the exhorbitant daily  hotel security fees for  his NYC  police details he takes along on his vaction trips to the Bahamas “when he travels, flying two officers on his private plane and paying as much as $400 a night to put them up at a hotel near his house; the city pays their wages while they are there, as it does whether Mr. Bloomberg is New York or not.”

Yet, unlike other billionaires, Bloomberg tips well, and folks like the Mayor coming around. And he supported Sonia Sotomayor for  U.S. Supreme Court and made up the entourage from New York City to speak on her behalf at the hearings in Washington.

If only he would  allow the professionals in education to take control of the City of New York Education Department and the schools again,  he wouldn’t be such a bad guy afer all. And the Mayor has made important alliances in education in his mayoral control of the NYC Public School System as this White House photograph shows.
