Newly elected Congressman Michael Grimm is having a “get to know you chat” with Mayor Michael Bloomberg this morning, according to one of Grimm’s aides
Bloomberg was a big supporter of Grimm’s Democratic opponent, Congressman Mike McMahon. A bit of a stir was created after the election when Grimm told NY1 that Bloomberg had not called to congratulate him. The Bloomberg administration has made a big effort in having good relations with city’s congressional delegation, although other than McMahon, most of the congressional races that Bloomberg got involved in were outside the city.
Grimm in turn tried to tie McMahon to Bloomberg during the race, knocking him for going along with the mayor and voting to raise property taxes when McMahon served in the City Council, and hitting him on his support of the Ground Zero Mosque.
