Black Voters Should Reconsider Supporting De Blasio, Says Former Ally
November 5, 2015
MIDTOWN — Two years ago, real estate developer Don Peebles was making calls to get African-American friends and business associates to throw their support and money behind the rising mayoral campaign of Public Advocate Bill de Blasio.
"De Blasio was pointing out what all New Yorkers saw, not necessarily a 'Tale of Two Cities,' but a tremendous disparity economically," said Peebles, 55, who considered de Blasio a friend. "As an African-American, I saw that as a very critical issue."
