I am Bill de Blasio, Democratic Candidate for Mayor of New York City. AMA.
Hey Redditors -- I'm Bill de Blasio, Progressive Democrat running for mayor of New York City. Really looking forward to your questions -- thanks for giving me a space here. And sorry for the delay. I just finished giving a speech about the importance of universal early education and how we can achieve it in New York City, and will get started very soon. I'll be taking your questions for an hour, and want to make sure I can get to as many as I can. Ask me anything.

FINAL EDIT: I'm really excited to have participated today. My nephew Ben and his wife Natalie told me glowingly how important Reddit is to them and how much news and insight they get from it. So it's really cool to finally experience it, and I appreciate everyone's passion and concern on these issues. If you like what i stand for, I hope I'll win your vote on November 5th. Then I look forward to coming back and communicating more with you as your mayor.
