Just one day after he departs City Hall, Mayor Michael Bloomberg is headed to sunny Hawaii, according to reports.
The Honolulu Civil Beat and Honolulu Star-Adviser reported yesterday that Mr. Bloomberg will be in Honolulu January 2 to help Senator Brian Schatz raise money ahead of an expected battle for his seat next year.
“A Schatz campaign spokesman confirmed the Bloomberg appearance Tuesday but would not comment further,” the Civil Beat report reads.
It seems like the trip to the island state may also include some vacation for soon-to-be unemployed Mr. Bloomberg. He has previously said he intends to play golf in Hawaii and New Zealand after his mayoralty ends. (Although his current tenure in office hasn’t stopped him from golfing in exotic locations.)
Mr. Schatz was appointed to fill the remainder of the term held by late Senator Daniel Inouye and is facing off against Congresswoman Colleen Hanabusa in the Democratic primary.
