De Blasio’s Inaugural Speech

“Analyzing De Blasio’s Inaugural Address” by the New York Times is an interesting way to read an inaugural speech. It has a video of it with time markers at different key points throughout it. They mark out different issues he addressed and provide an easy way for readers to skip to what is important to them.

Paid Sick Leave, Stop-and -Frisk, Taxing the Wealthy, among other topics.

The video is accompanied by a transcript with the key sections highlighted. On the right hand side, NYTimes journalists give us commentary and context to understand the meaning of the comments made by De Blasio. The journalists also point out areas where he went off-script.

I’ll leave you with the top quote of the speech–De Blasio’s most firm campaign message.

“We are called to put an end to economic and social inequalities that threaten to unravel the city we love.”
