(UnitedVoice.com) – Bill De Blasio, the Democrat mayor of New York City has wasted billions in taxpayer money — and this isn’t the first time he has done it.
Just two short years ago De Blasio overspent his budget by nearly $530 million, most of which was collected for his school “Renewal” program. The program, which had more failures than successes, spent over $ 773 million over three years. The four-year initiative was canceled after three.
Now here he is two years later, and the waste has continued with spending on pet programs dreamed up by his wife (and co-mayor).
It appears that $850 million was given to “co-mayor” Charlene McCray for what De Blasio called a “revolutionary” self-proclaimed “mental health scheme,” Thrive NYC. Of course, now she says she has no idea where the money went!
DeBlasio taps wife to co-chair NYC COVID-19 Task Force on Racial Equity. You know what? That $870 million she misspent while heading up THRIVE NYC would go a long way to helping poor and minority communities hard hit by COVID-19. She isn't qualified. pic.twitter.com/y8EoSv1Yxj

Now he’s appointed his wife as co-chair of the NYC COVID-19 Task Force on Racial Equity…wonder how much money she’ll misplace this time.
Bill De Blasio just makes mistake after mistake and then continues to expect New Yorkers to blindly follow him. Maybe they’ll remember these funding disasters next time he’s up for re-election, but probably not.
