STATEMENT BY MAYOR BLOOMBERG ON INAUGURATION OF PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA
"In President Obama's stirring words, we heard not only notes of hope and history, but a tone of pragmatism that has the power to bring the country together, and move us forward, together. His call for ‘a new era of responsibility' was music to the ears of Americans across the country who recognize that the change we need begins with fulfilling our duties - to our families, our countrymen, and our world. On behalf of all New Yorkers, I offer my congratulations to President Obama, and I look forward to working with him and his Administration to achieve the ambitious vision he laid out today."
