Mayor Bill de Blasio was a half-hour late on Saturday for the Rockaways St. Patrick's Day Parade. The habitually late mayor gives another excuse for being late that sounds to me like a lot of “blarney,” not to mention disrespectful to all those who showed up on time for the parade.
If I was late like that I would have been fired years ago. I've worked for Northeast Plumbing in Great Neck and now in Mineola for over 35 years and still counting. I have been on average 15 minutes early and that is in bad weather and 30 minutes in good.
I have painfully bad knees and now cancer and still get to work on time. Now if I can do that, than why can't Mayor de Blasio get to where he has to be on time? Sincerely,
Frederick R. Bedell, Jr.
