New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio took to the stage on Thursday to deliver his State of the City address - the sixth such one he has delivered since being in office. The theme was clear: money in the city is in the wrong hands and needs to be redistributed to others. "Here's the truth, brothers and sisters, there's plenty of money in the world. Plenty of money in this city. It's just in the wrong hands!" de Blasio said, according to the NY Times. The State of the City address was uncharacteristically held at 11 o'clock in the morning on Thursday, after being held in the evening in years past. In fact, 2019's busy media schedule and the "campaign like backdrop" that he delivered his speech in front of have been uncharacteristic for the Mayor. The socialist mayor has held five news conferences where he took media questions since the beginning of 2019.
