One of our spies on Staten Island tells us Freddy got an astonishingly good reception at the St. Patrick’s Day parade there Sunday.
“Take Mike Down,” was a favorite chant, we were told. “Those white-ethnic, blue-collar guys were screaming for Freddy: ‘Don’t raise my property tax like Mike.'” Cops and teachers were yelling, “Give us a contract.”
Bloomberg‘s reception wasn’t quite as enthusiastic.
“When he went to get on stage, you could have heard a pin drop.”
Now, incumbents do usually bear the wrath of the crowd. But Freddy’s reception was a surprise to our correspondent, a Democrat with no particular connection to the Ferrer campaign.
