Bloomberg Campaign Press Release - Mike Bloomberg Is a Leader on Democratic Causes

February 26, 2020

NEW YORK — During his tenure as mayor, Mike Bloomberg led New York in becoming one of the most progressive cities in the country. Mike pioneered New York through a new era of progress and prosperity – writing one of the great comeback stories in American history following the destruction of 9/11.

Unlike other candidates on the stage who talk about their support for Democratic causes, Mike has a proven record of action:

Since leaving City Hall, Mike has continued to build on the work he began as mayor, and he has shared his results-oriented approach to management with other mayors around the country. Through Bloomberg Philanthropies, Mike has worked to increase the number of low- and middle-income students who attend top colleges.

Everytown for Gun Safety, the gun safety group Mike co-founded, has fought and won time and again, including for laws requiring background checks on all gun sales (in states like Vermont), ensuring domestic abusers can't access guns (in states like Minnesota), and enabling family members to intervene when a person poses an extreme risk to themselves or others (in states like Colorado). And he has led the charge against climate change. In partnership with the Sierra Club, Mike is working to close half the nation's coal-fired power plants and working to advance the country's clean energy market.
