Bloomberg Offers Non-Partisan Praise at an Environmental Event

Michael Bloomberg zig-zagged over political lines last night, lauding a Republican and a Democrat during his speech at the New York League of Conservation Voters at Chelsea Piers, and then praising his hosts for being non-partisan.
Bloomberg praised Republican George Pataki, who is being talked about as a possible U.S. Senate candidate next year, and Democrat Jim Gennaro, who is likely to run for State Senate again.
Speaking from the podium, Bloomberg said, “It’s just a privilege to be here tonight with somebody who really has never gotten as much recognition as I think he deserves for his environmental work, and that’s our former governor, George Pataki.
