Part One — the Environment

As candidate and mayor, Bill de Blasio made four big promises to New York City.

1. To protect and improve the environment.
2. To reduce traffic deaths through his vision zero program.
3. To expand and improve education
4. To improve housing for low income families

I am a Democrat and support almost all the mayor’s polices. It pains me, therefore, to report that he is breaking all four of the above promises within a quarter mile of Gracie Mansion. At least one of these will lead to fatalities.

I will describe one broken promise a day for the next four days.
