SKDK’s Mike Morey on Mayor de Blasio’s Trip to Washington

SKDK’s Mike Morey was quoted in NBC political analyst Leigh Ann Caldwell‘s story on Mayor de Blasio’s DC trip to talk about progressive issues:

Michael Morey, a Democratic political strategist in New York City who has worked for numerous New York Democrats including Sen. Chuck Schumer said it’s probably too early in his first term for de Blasio to start traveling the country and focusing his attention elsewhere. He said that while de Blasio has implemented some policies such as universal pre-school for some New York children and pledged 200,000 additional units of affordable housing, he hasn’t yet completely established himself well enough to tout accomplishments.

“That being said, you have to be in the right place at the right time, and right now the country is talking about income inequality, so he’ seizing an opportunity as it emerges, and sometimes that means you can’t wait until you’re more sure footed back home,” Morey said.
