We’re deeply honored to announce the latest member of Team de Blasio: liberal philanthropist and businessman George Soros. Soros is one of the world’s most well-known progressive figures, and his sizable donations to leading liberal causes have made an enormous difference in the lives of countless people across the world. Take a look at what Soros had to say about Bill:
“I am endorsing Bill de Blasio for Mayor because I believe he has the talent, vision and ability to lead New York City," said Soros. “As Public Advocate, Bill de Blasio has promoted concrete policy changes that would mean far fewer innocent New Yorkers are subjected to demeaning police stops while at the same time maintaining reductions in crime."
Soros continued, “Mr. de Blasio’s commitment to create a truly universal Pre-K and after school system is sound public policy and will have a powerful impact on reducing inequality and improving the lives of generations of New Yorkers. Through his leadership and advocacy on the issue of campaign finance reform, Bill de Blasio has been an important advocate for protecting our elections from the undue influence of special interests. He has helped to mobilize activists and leaders from across the country to fight the impact of Citizens United. New York’s next Mayor needs to possess conviction, intelligence, and a clear vision for where they want to take the city. I believe Bill de Blasio possesses these qualities and will be an outstanding Mayor for all New Yorkers."
