In Mayoral Race, de Blasio’s Focus Is Beyond Manhattan -

The New York Times profiles the next mayor of New York, Bill deBlasio:

"Mr. de Blasio likens Mr. Bloomberg, in approach if not results, to Robert Moses, and has amassed a running tally of the indignities and inequities in four boroughs: a yawning income gap, a surge in fines for small businesses, slighted schools and inadequate early childhood education.

He envisions an activist city government that addresses those disparities head on. Alone among the Democratic field, he calls for a tax increase on the rich, to bankroll universal prekindergarten."
