Big Bill DeBlasio is the first mayor to call Brooklyn home since tiny Abe Beame sat in City Hall for one term from 1973 to 1977. The most noticeable difference between the two is clearly height, but how do the two stack up otherwise? Find out in this week’s breakdown.

Arrest from Bloomberg NOW! says:
Mayor Bloomberg should be held to account for mismanagement and deliberate malfeasance for his decision to NOT negotiate a single union contract in 12 YEARS!

Anyone who says the city can't afford to do the right thing by their employees when Bloomberg told them they could expect raises, just keep working, should think again. This is all the fault of that Tiny, Tiny Mayor Bloomberg, and he should be hauled into court before he escapes to London.

T-Bone from DoBro says:
Ha, most of them are over paid as it is. Here's a solution: Any city employee that is not happy with their pay and job can quit, and the city can try to replace them with someone new who will accept that pay. If they can't find anyone qualified... well, increase the pay until you do. What a concept!

Ted from Shoeville says:
This is not a forum to complain about Mayor Bloomberg. And Bloomberg was a god among mayors, anyway, so get a clue!

I'd like to know more about DeBlasio vs Markowitz personally. Would he have lost to Marty?

Also, I like T-Bone's idea.
