Former New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio opens up about what he would have done differently: ‘I realize I got lost in the brush’

NEW YORK — Former New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has spoken politics again more than 100 days after leaving office.

He was on the radio Friday and talked about some of the things he would have done differently as mayor.

“I realized that I got lost in the brush. One of the lines I put in the op-ed really typifies it for me: I confused politics with popularity,” de Blasio said.

De Blasio recently wrote an op-ed offering advice for Democrats ahead of the midterms.

He encouraged staying engaged with the public rather than doing too much work behind closed doors.
