At Work, de Blasio Finds Full Plate of Headaches
One of his chief aides, Howard Wolfson, appeared on CNN and WNYC radio to say that some of the remarks at Mr. de Blasio’s inauguration, including by the singer Harry Belafonte, had unfairly characterized the departing mayor’s record.
Asked on Thursday about “anti-Bloomberg” remarks at his inauguration ceremony, Mr. de Blasio said he disagreed with the premise.
“I made clear my real respect for Mayor Bloomberg,” he said. “It’s not a secret that I’ve had some disagreements with him on policy, but I honored with a whole heart what he did to this city.”
