New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg opened campaign offices in all five boroughs this weekend.
Joined by former Mayor Ed Koch, New York State Senators Marty Golden and Frank Padavan, and other community leaders and volunteers, Bloomberg opened campaign offices in Queens, Bronx, Staten Island, Manhattan and Brooklyn.
Chanina Sperlin, Executive VP of the Crown Heights JCC, was an invited guest at the Brooklyn opening. The mayor noted that Rabbi Sperlin was the first Jewish Community Leader to support him when he first ran for this post.
“I am proud of what we have achieved together, but we aren’t done yet,” said Bloomberg. “We plan to build on our success – preserving neighborhood character, making the streets even safer, cleaner and greener, continuing to improve education for our kids, and creating jobs and economic opportunities. I believe that with independent, nonpartisan leadership, we can keep all five boroughs moving forward. Between now and November, I look forward to talking with New Yorkers about our plans. And that’s what these campaign offices are all about: getting involved and staying involved. But I can’t do it alone – I need your help.”
