Ex-Mayor Mike Bloomberg has donated five or so of his many millions to a group running ads in support of Gov. Kathy Hochul’s budget proposals.
We hope it reaches New Yorkers who may not realize what is going on — and how vital it is to pass Hochul’s initiatives.
Progressives thrive in darkness.
They refuse to make necessary changes to the no-bail law or allow for more charter schools in New York City, even though the majority of the public backs those measures.
Rather than argue, they hope voters just don’t notice.
Bloomberg’s ad spending will cast some much-needed light on the problems.
On charters, lawmakers are following orders from the state’s teachers unions, which spend millions year after year on their own “public information” campaigns and on donations to pols (and also deliver vast non-monetary support in elections).
On crime, it’s the left’s organizing power that moves Democrats, dominating low-turnout primaries so that legislators who know better still fear to stand up against the madness.
So kudos to Bloomberg for telling New York what’s happening.
And let’s hope that many of the people who watch these ads call their representatives and tell them to stop standing in the way of sanity.
