NYC Mayor de Blasio reboots huge Bloomberg tech boondoggle

When exHizzoner Bloomberg was in control of the program to overhaul the 911 system in New York City, he made millionaires out of scores of tech consultants. The result? The $2 billion project is millions over budget and years behind schedule.

The new guy, de Blasio, has cut three quarters of the consultants and brought supervision of the project in-house.

De Blasio wants other people to stop speeding

Back in February, NYC Mayor Di Blasio proposed that taxi meters be modified so they wouldn’t charge whenever the cab was driving over the speed limit. Then two days later, Hizzoner’s own motorcade was caught speeding 45 mph in a 30 mph zone, and up to 60 mph in a 45 mph zone.

Hey Di Blasio, is the speed limit just for the little people?
