Michael Bloomberg gets some harsh treatment today in the Riverdale Review, a local paper (not online) serving that Manhattan-esque enclave in the Bronx.
The neighborhood, it’s worth recalling, was one in which Bloomberg beat Bronx Borough President Fernando Ferrer by more than 2:1 in the 2005 mayor’s race (81st Assembly District).
Andy Wolf, the editor of the paper there (who also writes a column for the New York Sun) slams Bloomberg for, among other things, “fair school funding.”
"But the Bloomberg funding plan will so starve our three local public schools so much that no parent would subject their child to them – or move to our community.
"He is a disaster for our community, and we can only turn to the famous “countdown clock” in City Hall waiting for his exit and perhaps some relief from a new mayor who understands our needs and aspirations."
