Dietl Votes

Independent mayoral candidate Bo Dietl voted this morning on Manhattan’s Upper East Side.  Arriving just after 8:00 Dietl was greeted by a modest press contingent.

Speaking shortly after he voted Dietl expressed some satisfaction at having run, but with anticipatory disappointment at the expected outcome.  He offered a compliment to Mayor de Blasio for funding the NYPD, but also threw several jabs at the mayor.  Dietl offered unprompted praise for Republican candidate Nicole Malliotakis, describing her as having a “bright future” and saying that he hopes “her day comes one day.”


Here is Dietl’s post-voting press conference:
