New York, NY - New Yorkers believe that Mayor Bill de Blasio’s personal weekday travel schedule for junkets outside the city is now affecting his job performance, as the mayor has accumulated over six weeks of non-work related absenteeism since taking office 22 months ago.

NYPOST.com (http://bit.ly/1WrbA6T) reports that de Blasio has racked up nearly double the amount personal weekday travel days that former New York mayor Michael Bloomberg did over the same period, with much of the time being spent on non-official city business.

While de Blasio has often picked up the tab for his family’s travel expenses, taxpayers have still been footing the bill on other trips, such as the mayor’s $16,000 tab for a Vatican junket in July for a conference on climate change.

A Quinnipiac University poll revealed that 50% of New Yorkers believe the de Blasio’s globe-trotting on national issue-related matters has become a distraction from his job.
