“As we get closer, we will enunciate, in detail, what $2 billion means,” said Bloomberg. “It means an enormous number of police officers, firefighters, sanitation workers, teachers, every single agency in the city.”
The mayor says the big five – education, police, fire, correction, and sanitation – will bear the brunt of the burden.
