January 9, 2019 - Max & Murphy Podcast: De Blasio's 2019
Mayor de Blasio had a tumultuous and somewhat sleepy 2018, the first year of his second term after winning reelection in a race where he offered few new ideas, but has come out of the gate in 2019 with new energy and proposals. Jill Jorgensen of the Daily News, who has covered de Blasio closely for most of his tenure as mayor, joined the show to discuss where de Blasio stands as the new year begins, his recent proposals and choppy rollout of the Fair Fares discount Metrocard program, his impending State of the City address, and other important matters and dynamics.
