Bill deBlasio

No one living in New York City likes Bill deBlasio our current 2-term mayor.

The one thing he did right was give the city workers their union raises. Former billionaire mayor Michael Bloomberg refused to give the city workers any raise at all. They went over 5 years without getting a pay raise.

Like every mayor before him deBlasio has green-lighted the development of multi-million dollar apartment buildings.

At the expense of creating affordable housing.

Under deBlasio’s helm the number of homeless people has skyrocketed.

This year the Hudson Yards upscale retail shopping and residential complex opened up. It cost something like billions of dollars to develop.

That money could’ve been used to create affordable housing for the homeless. Instead more homeless shelters were built.

One outright example of fraud is ThriveNYC an endeavor that prioritizes social issues as the cause of mental health conditions.

Not at all does ThriveNYC serve people with severe and chronic mental illness.

ThriveNYC is funded to the tune of $850 thousand dollars.

The list goes on.

I cannot recommend that a person fresh out of college moves to New York City to get a job and live. You would need to earn at least $90K to live on your own in my city.

My stance is to Just Say No to Bill deBlasio as president of the United States.

I tell you today: Mr. Toupee will be re-elected.

Mark my words: Mr. Toupee will win a second term in 2020.

As it is I’m no fan of any political party. I detest liberals and democrats as much as I hold republicans and conservatives in contempt.

Neither is better than any other.

I would possibly vote for Kirsten Gillibrand. Only in a face-off with Mr. Toupee she wouldn’t win.

It’s your choice who you vote for. And you should vote for the person you think will best serve your interests.

Ordinary Americans scraping by to make ends meet have historically been fleeced.

When Mr. Toupee lowered the tax rate the amount of taxes people had to pay come April 15th skyrocketed.

Now with his tariffs on Mexico the cost of avocados–which come here from Mexico–will skyrocket too.

What is the solution? I don’t expect much from our elected leaders in Washington.

As I stated before, real change will occur person-to-person.

We have to think for ourselves about how to treat other people.

We can choose to love others. We can decide for ourselves what is true.

Instead of allowing other people–and those elected in power–to tell us what to think.

I say: think for yourself. Vote for Bill deBlasio if you feel he’s the best candidate.

I’m not going to vote for deBlasio. His time as our mayor won’t end soon enough for my liking.

You’re lucky if you can afford to live in New York City today.

I’ll end here by telling you to get out and vote.

Call or write your elected leaders on the issues that matter to you too.

It will be a wild ride to see how the presidential campaign unfolds.

Hang in there.
