De Blasio was coy on his transition plans, but did say that a meeting last week with Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel had been helpful.
"I won't go into detail, I'll say I think he's one of the great mayors of this country and obviously as having been the chief of staff at the White House and having played a key role in President Obama's transition into office, he had a lot to say that was very, very helpful and I look forward to working very closely with him," he said.
How "progressive" is de Blasio if he thinks Emanuel is a "great mayor"?
Will de Blasio run the school system the way Emanuel runs it in Chicago?
Will de Blasio have a similarly antagonistic relationship with the unions?
This statement from de Blasio is troubling.
Very, very troubling.
More later - after the coronation.
