New York - During a Tuesday morning appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” program, former New York Governor and Republican presidential candidate George Pataki said, “Things are getting worse” in New York City and that he fears they’ll continue to if Mayor Bill de Blasio doesn’t “get his act together.”

NY1.com (http://bit.ly/1EhTGeF) reports that Pataki said “Leadership matters” while citing noticeable declines in “quality of life” issues under de Blasio’s administration.

“The police have been told to back off, not to proactively police,” Pataki said. “We’ve changed the laws in Albany and let violent criminals out.”

Pataki cited his own policies in cleaning up Times Square and improving quality of life issues as the way de Blasio must go if he wants to stop the decline.

De Blasio should take a ride down Ocean Parkway and see how many homeless are sleeping on benches. More than I've seen in a long time
