HIKIND PRAISES DE BLASIO OVER
Assemblyman Dov Hikind (D-Brooklyn) had high praise for NYC Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio regarding his appointment of William J. Bratton to head the New York City Police Department.
“William Bratton has a distinguished record,” said Assemblyman Hikind. “He played a key role in the 1990s in New York, bringing law and order back to our city. His reputation for working with communities was impeccable and our community is delighted to have him back at a time when crime is becoming a concern again.
“I had the distinct pleasure of hosting William Bratton when he was our Police Commissioner before he headed to Los Angeles. Personally, I can’t think of anyone I’d rather see in this position.
“Those who were concerned about safety under the new mayoral administration should not have been. Bill de Blasio has proven that with this appointment and I enthusiastically applaud him.”
