De Blasio Admits Botched Snow Plow Job in NYC


de-blasioMayor de Blasio finally stopped patting himself on the back for a stellar storm cleanup on Wednesday – and admitted that the city did a lousy job plowing the Upper East Side.

De Blasio first claimed at a morning press briefing that sanitation crews did “a helluva job” removing snow across the city, but he did an about-face in the evening after talking to angry residents, who echoed a Post report about the plower outage.

“While the overall storm response across the city was well-executed, after inspecting the area and listening to concerns from residents earlier today, I determined more could have been done to serve the Upper East Side,” de Blasio said in a statement. “I have instructed the commissioner of the Department of Sanitation to double-down on cleanup efforts on the Upper East Side, and as a result, 30 vehicles and nearly 40 sanitation workers have been deployed to the area to finish the cleanup.” Read more here.

  1. WinkWink, that’s because he started up with the Sanitation Dept. when he ascended the throne. His first order, on day #1, was to do away with the horse-drawn carriages and he’ll see to it that snow removal is improved. Said he then, “I’m from Brooklyn and we get lousy snow removal services. That’s going to change under my administration!” How foolish! He’s learning, maybe!
