NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — In his final weekly radio address, Mayor Michael Bloomberg thanked New Yorkers for electing him three times and touted his record at City Hall.
“Thank you for giving me the honor and privilege of serving you for 12 years,” he said during his appearance on 1010 WINS. “You took a chance on me in the dark days after 9/11, when the city’s future was so uncertain and our hearts were so heavy. I was a political outsider, a relative unknown, an entrepreneur with no government experience who asked for your trust.”READ MORE: New York State Legislature Votes To Curb Gov.
