Why is our Mayor hiding behind Neil Giacobbi?
Come to think of it, who is Neil Giacobbi?
Here's a funny story about Michael Bloomberg. The Parks1 campaign wants to enable its supporters to email the Mayor. But his re-election website won't give an email address. You have to fill out a form.
So I did. I asked if they'd start posting events.
And Neil Giaccobbi wrote back.
So, his being the only address I had to communicate with CREEM (the Committee to Re-Elect the Mayor), I used it on the Parks1 site.
Is Neil the right guy? Not necessarily. But our Communications Director did receive this email back from him:
I am inquiring about the posting on your web site that references Mayor Bloomberg (http://www.parks1.org/candidates) You listed my email address. I can direct you to an appropriate person within the campaign for comment. But, I did not supply that statement nor do I deal in matters of policy and the press.
Which means soon the Mayor can hide behind the appropriate policy rep.
And it means that people have trying to write to the Mayor about our parks.
