Bill de Blasio Wins Second Term as Brooklyn Mayor

Hours after cruising to re-election, Mayor de Blasio descended on Brooklyn’s Borough Hall for a meet-and-greet with supporters.

“Thank you!” de Blasio gushed while standing outside of the Borough Hall subway station Wednesday morning, shaking hands with fans and posing for selfies and photos for about a half-hour.

Hizzoner won a second term Tuesday night, beating out his Republican Nicole Malliotakis, 66 to 28 percent.

He became the first Democratic mayor to be re-elected since Ed Koch in 1985.

Alex Rodriguez, 22, a student at the New York City College of Technology was among those who chatted with de Blasio.

“I asked him about gentrification around low income areas. I told him that I live in the South Bronx and me and my mother pay a lot of rent in the building we live and there’s always problems in it,” Rodriguez said.

“He said he has a plan to help balance things out and make new housing. He said he’s making a balancing plan for rent.”
