I am 95 years old and have lived through two world wars, economic catastrophes, have outlived most of my children and am a widow on a fixed income.
I ask why it is necessary for an 18 Billionaire like mayor Bloomberg to raise every cost in the city. Since Bloomberg my house tax has doubled, my water bill has doubled, my sales tax has gone up, my transportation cost has gone up. I understand tickets have doubled and the police don't take reports anymore of vandalism or break-ins.
Bloomberg does not really know anything about real suffering otherwise he wouldn't be so arrogant. I have less to survive on while he has more money than ever. The city doesn't really do anything better than before, the response to the Christmas snow storm shows the city does less. There is no more bang for the buck, just a fizzle.
We don't know anything about mayor Bloomberg's private life and I believe we ought to know as much as possible about a public figure. A public figure will make decisions which affect us all. I'm not pleased with our mayor for the reasons listed. I just think he's out of touch!
