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:
