Bloomberg Opens Offices in Three Boroughs, Mostly Ignores the Protesters

Michael Bloomberg opened campaign offices in three different boroughs today, a gesture toward accessibility in the early stage of his potentially $80 million campaign.
At each stop—in Manhattan, Brooklyn and Staten Island—Bloomberg was joined by at least one elected official and one local supporter who worked on his 2005 re-election campaign.
In Manhattan and Brooklyn, his appearances were also interrupted by protesters demonstrating against reductions in funding for housing and resources for AIDS  treatment. The group tried to make its presence known, with minimal success.
At the first office opening, on Staten Island, volunteers waved small “Mike Bloomberg NYC” signs and cheered the mayor as he arrived, wearing a blue sweater and a white shirt with the collar unbuttoned.
