Mayor Bill de Blasio claims to represent 99 percent of average New Yorkers, but lives the life style of the 1 percent behind a gated Gracie Mansion with his own police detail providing round the clock protection, all on the taxpayers tab. This includes a security detail accompanying him to the gym.
He doesn’t have to worry about the dangerous felons about to be released from Rikers Island who could easily become repeat offenders. As a lame-duck mayor, he has no concerns about what he will leave behind.
Pity his successor, who is going to have some mess to clean up.
