Statement From A.G. Schneiderman On The Inauguration Of New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio

NEW YORK – The following statement can be attributed to Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman in response to the inauguration of Bill De Blasio as the 109th mayor of New York City:

“Bill De Blasio has inspired New Yorkers with a progressive vision for closing the deep economic divide that has left the middle class, and those who aspire to be in it, further and further behind. With Mayor De Blasio’s leadership, I am confident that we can build a city where we all rise together. I was honored to swear him in last night, and I look forward to working with the new mayor toward a New York where everyone gets a fair shot, everyone pays their fair share, and there is one set of rules for everyone.”
