“Mayor de Blasio is the mayor that finished the guarantee and committed to close Rikers Island,” protester Alfredo Carrasquillo told CBS New York. “We’re out here just making certain we hold him to his word.”

“I consider he cares about all of us not any one precinct or any one socioeconomic cut and we consider that’s important,” one Brooklyn voter said.
The mayor, clearly unfazed, emerged from the library after voting. De Blasio pronounced he has a lot of goals for another 4 years in bureau and hopes that despite projections of a low audience that New Yorkers come out in vast numbers to support him.
“I consider that the election last year is going to start to change function in preference of audience and participation,” de Blasio told reporters. “I consider there’s a lot of seductiveness generally after 2016 in being endangered and getting the summary out.”
The mayor forked electorate to his record and his signature initiative, concept pre-K.
“The things we have finished the last 4 years in an bid to bring some-more integrity and equivalence to New York City, stop-and-frisk down 93-percent, crime down as well,” he said.
Albanese, a counsel and former city councilman, expel his list on Staten Island. He pronounced he’s assured despite being overwhelmingly outspent and out-marketed by de Blasio’s group in promotion in the lead up to Tuesday.
“I’m not that endangered about it since people already know what Bill de Blasio has finished as mayor, so nothing of the promotion is going to change that,” he said.
Some in de Blasio’s home bottom in Brooklyn still plainly upheld him.
“He’s training to be mayor of the City of New York,” pronounced Park Slope proprietor Evan Bauer. “Not all the initiatives have succeeded but we consider he’s doing the right thing.”

“He’s gonna win,” Coogan said.
On the Republican side, Malliotakis, of Staten Island, is using unopposed. Among her attacks on the mayor was bashing his refusal to support open avowal of donors who find favors from City Hall.
“It sends a sign that New York City is for sale,” she said.
