In practice the office provides is a bully pulpit for attention causing trouble. That is what apparently happened here with the publicly funded stepping stone job that allowed a run for mayor.
The Mayor's team DB continues its damage control, while he has arrived late to multiple events and apparently there appear to be little or no changes insight. What has he done for NYC?
