New York Magazine – Past Fellow Andrew Rice’s latest article examines the accomplishments of and opinions on New York’s mayor two years into his term. The piece, which is New York Magazine’s cover story this week, addresses de Blasio’s dismally low approval rating, despite the fact that the city is doing well quantifiably – with a thriving economy and a decrease in crime.  Rice delves into the perception that New Yorkers have of their mayor; many feel that the quality of life has gone down in New York since de Blasio entered into office.  This may or may not be an accurate perception (the city has had a dramatic increase in pothole repair rates in the past year), but the question remains – can de Balsio repair his reputation and secure a second term as mayor?  Read the full article to learn more and to see what de Blasio himself had to say to Rice on the matter.
