In a stunning slap at Mayor de Blasio, one of the city’s leading civic groups announced Monday that it is not making an endorsement in the mayor’s race for the first time in a half century because of “troubling” ethical issues hounding the administration.
“This is a sad day for Citizens Union that it cannot, in good conscience, support any of the candidates for mayor, including the incumbent, who has spent most of his tenure engulfed in troubling ethical issues that continue to swirl around him. New Yorkers deserve better than this,” said Randy Mastro, the group’s chairman.
“We call upon whoever is elected to commit themselves to ethics reforms that clean up City Hall.”
