Inauguration 2018

New York City’s three citywide elected officials were sworn in to second terms Monday, with Mayor Bill de Blasio, Public Advocate Letitia James and Comptroller Scott Stringer taking their oaths in front of City Hall on a bitterly cold afternoon.  All three were reelected to a second and final term in November, with term limits precluding 2021 reelection bids.  They’re able to run for each others offices however, with James and Stringer widely seen as contemplating mayoral runs.

2017 Year In Photos

Baseball fan Timothy Cardinal Dolan sports a borrowed Yankees hat while the hat’s owner sports Cardinal Dolan’s zucchetto.

Mayoral candidates fighting and occasionally smiling, a governor working his fellow electeds and the cameras, a hometown president passing through.  Those are among the images in our 2017 photo retrospective.

Shot entirely in the five boroughs, our photo retrospective reflects our 2017 focus on the mayoral election and particularly on challengers looking to defeat Mayor de Blasio.  There’s more, however, with a mix of light moments, conflict and loss.

Our photographic look back at 2017 is available here.

Democratic Field Ops

Claremont, NH 1-5-16It’s not just Trump land.  Democratic presidential candidates Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton have field offices in downtown Claremont, New Hampshire, which I happened upon ahead of Donald Trump’s rally Tuesday evening.  Both storefront offices were quiet during my mid-afternoon visits, with three people working in the Sanders office and one in the Clinton office.   I received a friendly, if slightly wary, reception in both.  Sanders had the better art, with some eye-catching candidate-worship pieces while Clinton featured a life-size candidate photo/cutout.  Clinton also had a donation basket for a local food bank.  I didn’t see any other candidate offices in town.

Here are a few photo’s from each:
