Mayor Reviews Own Report
September 29th, 2009
In very typical Bloomberg administration fashion, the mayor released a review of his annual report, which reviews city agencies’ performances.
Only in the Bloomberg administration can they release a review of a review and make news.
Nonetheless, the Wonkster took a perusal. Within the plethora of measurements, which were divided into six categories, negatives are few and far between.
There are a few though. Here is the raw data:
Construction related incidents (New Category): 214 (FY06), 543 (FY09)
