Bowie’s official Facebook page announced that the Mayor’s Office declared January 20, 2016 officially David Bowie Day. The Mayor’s Office confirmed that Acting Commissioner Luis Castro of the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment presented the proclamation on behalf of City Mayor Bill de Blasio at the final performance of Lazarus, the Off-Broadway musical that Bowie co-wrote and co-produced.
George McDonald, founder of the Doe Fund, launched his mayoral campaign, entering a Republican primary field that includes former Metropolitan Transportation Authority Chair Joseph Lhota and billionaire grocery-store magnate John Catsimatidis. Mr. McDonald, whose nonprofit focuses on job placement for the homeless, said his goal is full employment in New York.
It’ll be sad to see Mayor Mike go, but I’m looking forward to see the campaigning begin and who might be a worthy replacement.
