New York City - Moving Violations Down 32% In 90th Precinct; Source Charges De Blasio With "Pandering" To Hasidic Vote
New York, NY - With records showing a 32% reduction in moving violations being written in Williamsburg’s Hasidic neighborhoods over the first nine months of the de Blasio administration, a former city Liaison claims it’s because the new mayor is “pandering” to the ultra-Orthodox Jewish community to keep its vote.
NTPOST.com (http://bit.ly/1ZNYH6d) reports that NYPD records show 7,077 tickets have been written so far in 2015 in the 90th Precinct, a marked decrease from the the 10,365 handed out during the same period in 2013 when Mayor Bloomberg was still in office.
The former Liaison says that the reduction is no accident, and that’s it’s because de Blasio wants to hold onto the 70,000 ultra-Orthodox Jewish block that resides the neighborhoods.
“They pander and he gives them a lot of what they want,” a former mayoral liaison said. “De Blasio is known to have tight ties to the Hasidic community.”
The “NYPD issues tickets . . . without regard to neighborhoods,” said de Blasio spokeswoman Karen Hinton.
