mayor michael bloomberg Bloomberg Chips In $3,800 For BingMore from the Board of Elections 24-hour filings:

Mayor Michael Bloomberg has sent nearly $4,000 to the re-election effort of Jonathan Bing, the Upper East Side assemblyman who represents the mayor in Albany. Bing is getting a primary challenge from Gregg Lundahl, who has been backed by the teacher’s union and is targeting Bing’s support for a bill that change the way teachers are laid off when cuts occur. Bing favors ending a process whereby the most recently hired teachers are laid off, and favors instead a system that would lay-off those who have been shown to be less effective.

The mayor endorsed Bing in July.

According to the filings, the mayor has sent $37,800 to Dan Donovan’s attorney general campaign.
