New York Times City Room New York Today: Their First 100 Days, Too by Annie Correal and Andy Newman
Good morning on this warm, cloudy Friday.
Welcome to the 101st day of the year.
Mayor de Blasio will continue talking about his first 100 days in a Google Hangout this morning.
He’s hardly the only politician recounting his early ups and downs (mostly ups, of course).
The “first-100-days” stocktaking has spread to lesser officials. They, too, find it an easy way to remind constituents of their existence.
We asked some other newcomers to reflect on their first 3.33 months.
City Councilman Corey Johnson stepped into some big shoes: he took over Christine C. Quinn’s district on Manhattan’s West Side.
In his first month, a giant hole opened up in the middle of it.
“There was a pretty massive water main break,” he said.
He had not a cross word for them.
“We got some tweets,” was all he said.
