Mayor Bloomberg just can’t seem to shake the shadow of his wealth. This afternoon, reminders of his riches even followed him into the bright hall where he performed his salt-of-the-earth act for an audience of teamsters.
“My friend Cathy Duggan used to fly his recreational plane on the weekends,” said Maureen Aquila, a blond teamster wearing a “Women for Bloomberg” button. She reminded the Mayor of his old pilot after he received an endorsement fromt the Joint Council 16, which represents 130,000 workers.
“He just lit up when he heard that,” Aquila said.
