Union Feeding Time at City Hall by Bob McManus – City Journal
by Optimization with an Impact (OpIm)
De Blasio was paid as an SEIU consultant while he ran for the New York City Council in 2001. His soon-to-be first deputy mayor, Anthony Shorris, a ubiquitous career bureaucrat, left the Bloomberg administration in a dispute over his own SEIU consultancy contract. Emma Wolfe, de Blasio’s political gatekeeper, is a former SEIU organizer, and Dominic Williams, Shorris’s chief of staff, is a one-time SEIU operative. So Team de Blasio will obviously view things through SEIU-tinted glasses.
