Bloomberg Get his third time

We had reported in the past we thought Bloomberg had enough muscle (money) to get his way. Yesterday the New York city Counsel voted 29-22 to allow Mayor Bloomberg to seek a third term. Something that the great Rudy Giuliani was not even allowed to even bring to a vote. The backroom deal that was spearheaded by city Council President Christine Quinn moved when she had enough votes to get it through. There was huge cheer let out in the governor’s mansion, as now Governor David A Paterson does not have Bloomberg opposing him at least not in the next election. So this battle is by no means over as it is probably on to the Courts. It could go on the ballot as early as next year as it was in 1993 and 1996. The opposition has some teeth this time and they probably will have help from past opponents, including the cosmetics heir billionaire Ronald S. Lauder. When it all play out it will be interesting to see if it passes how it will affect Bloomberg and Quinn. Other candidates were heard crying after the vote, as an open seat would have been an easier fight. A Short list of who has been mentioned Rep. Anthony Weiner, Councilman Tony Avella, Councilman David Weprin, and Comptroller William Thompson Jr. today Bloomberg got his way but at what cost we will have to wait and see.
