Mayor Fighting Against Income Inequality Spends Nearly $2 Million on Inauguration and Transition

Filings released by the New York City campaign finance board show that Mayor Bill de Blasio has spent almost $2 million on his inauguration and transition efforts thus far.  The mayor who touts “a future of greater equality and opportunity”, and seeks to fund universal pre-K programs by taxing the rich, spent nearly a quarter of a million dollars on inauguration day festivities alone.

Via Politicker:

Mayor Bill de Blasio spent nearly $2 million on his inauguration and transition efforts so far, according to new numbers released today by the city’s campaign finance board.

The new numbers show that, between January 1 and February 28, the campaign spent more than $980,00 on the efforts, including more than $240,600 on his Inauguration Day festivities. That’s in addition to the more than $1 million spent between early November and December 31, 2013 and reported by the board earlier this year.

Inauguration Day spending included roughly $12,000 for invitations, $7,000 for programs, and over $35,000 for a teleprompter.

And the suit de Blasio was sporting for his inauguration?  Nearly $2,000 to start.
