DC: New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio promised Monday to usher the city into a “new progressive era” that will spread beyond the city’s “borders.”
“Something big is happening in New York City,” de Blasio told a crowd of hundreds gathered in front of City Hall Monday. The 56-year-old Democratic mayor announced a commitment to bring about “a new progressive era in this city’s history,” one that will be “felt beyond our borders.”
De Blasio was sworn in Monday for his second and final term as the city’s mayor. Progressive stalwart Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont administered de Blasio the oath.
De Blasio has instituted a number of progressive policies in the name of health or some perceived social good during his tenure as mayor.
