How will the 2009 Democratic mayoral candidates relate to Mike Bloomberg, who is term-limited but also popular and rich?
The answer for Adolfo Carrion seems to be to stay as close as possible to the mayor.
Speaking at his fund-raiser at Tribeca Grill last night, Carrion offered the following comparison, according to an attendee who was taking notes:
"New Yorkers should not be asking their leaders about the efforts they've made — they should be demanding to hear about the results they've achieved. Our city has plenty of political leaders who can talk a good game, but very few who have a record of results that back it up. Mayor Bloomberg has that kind of record and, frankly, so do I."
