The endorsement editorial praises Bloomberg for his economic stewardship, improvement of public schools and work on reducing hate crimes.
In a brief telephone interview, the publisher, Mujeeb Lodhi, said “We believe Bloomberg is the right person, especially for small industry people. They are very happy with him.”
When I asked about Bloomberg’s resistance to incorporating Muslim holidays into the public school calendar, Lodhi said, “We are working hard to work with Bloomberg so that he should treat us all the same. If the Jewish community has a holiday, and Christian’s have a holiday, why shouldn’t we?”
