Mal­lio rip at Bill may be off track

New York Daily News - - NEWS - Jil­lian Jorgensen

A NEW COM­MER­CIAL from Repub­li­can may­oral hope­ful Ni­cole Mal­lio­takis blasts Mayor de Bla­sio for the city’s sub­ways — which are run by the state.

Mal­lio­takis, an assem­bly­woman who rep­re­sents Staten Is­land and Brook­lyn, has re­leased her sec­ond tele­vi­sion spot, dubbed “Sub­way Night­mare.”

“What’s it like rid­ing the sub­way un­der Bill de Bla­sio? A lot like this,” she says, as the lights go out in an empty sub­way car she’s in­side.

“A night­mare!” the can­di­date says, as some­one flick­ers a lighter near her face to il­lu­mi­nate her.

De Bla­sio spent much of the sum­mer seek­ing to re­mind com­muters that it is Gov. Cuomo and the state gov­ern­ment that runs the Metropoli­tan Trans­porta­tion Au­thor­ity. But Mal­lio­takis has said de Bla­sio should pitch in half the cost of an emer­gency up­grade plan, as Cuomo has re­quested, and that his mem­bers on the board should be more vo­cal.
