Cambridge native and fellow CRLS alumn and Red Sox fan, Bill de Blasio was inaugurated as New York City’s Mayor today at 1pm. The new Mayor was sworn in by former President Bill Clinton. Not too far into his address he shouted these words:
We will not wait on income inequality
And with that, the defining issue of our time has become the top priority for our nation’s largest city. Congratulations to Bill and his family on this special day-and congratulations to New Yorkers who finally have a fearless liberal as Mayor once again.
As a fellow CRLS graduate I am proud, and as someone hoping to start a multicultural family myself-I am glad to see his serve as a national example. In just five days Boston will have its own fighting liberal inaugurated, and I can’t wait to congratulate Marty Walsh when that day comes.
