WCBSTV: Bloomberg Could Face Angry Council If Reelected

WCBSTV published "Bloomberg Could Face Angry Council If Reelected", which makes a similar point to a NY Times article. Here is their description of the new dynamics at City Hall:

There's every indication that the mayor knows he needs to mend fences. On Friday, he met with council delegations from various boroughs about the Willets Point project.

"This kind of meeting on a mayoral proposal is somewhat unprecedented for this mayor," said Councilman Oliver Koppell (D-Bronx).

"He's almost never talked to council members, suddenly he's calling all of us and [asking] can't we all get along? And he's meeting with borough delegations and God bless him, but after seven years it's hard to believe a sudden revelation he wants to be cooperative," said Bill De Blasio (D-Brooklyn).
