Goldsmith Out as NYC Deputy Mayor

Deputy Mayor Steve Goldsmith, who was largely blamed for two horribly managed winters in New York City, recently announced his retirement from "public service." That is if you believe the spin coming from Mayor Michael Bloomberg's office. If you read what local New York City media are saying, it's a much different story.

Gary Welsh compiled several stories in this post, so I'll just direct you there.

Surprisingly, this story is making the rounds outside of the blogosphere. Several of my family members awoke to see an e-mail from my uncle this morning, linking a New York Post story talking about Goldsmith's "resignation." Goldsmith was Mayor of Indianapolis when my grandfather, Gordon Gilmer, retired from the City-County Council in 1999. Despite both being Republicans, they did not get along and didn't see eye-to-eye on many issues. It's funny how some things change, the more others stay the same.
