In his speech Bill De Blasio’s brought up those who are less fortunate, the lower or working class and spoke about how things such as hospitals which are a necessity especially in poorer neighborhoods; are being taken away so that other things such as condos can be built. He spoke about how he wants to put an end to racial profiling. In his speech he thanked a lot of people that helped him during his candidate such as Organizations, Ambassadors, his Campaign team, family and friends. He spoke about how everyone should have an equal opportunity to receive an education. Overall he showed where he stands and the changes that he wants to make.
Bill De Blasio’s speech was very humble, heartfelt and humorous. In the beginning of his speech his daughter spoke and he had a brief moment where he thanked his kids and wife and it was very sweet. He chose to do his speech in Brooklyn instead of Manhattan which shows that he has not forgotten about where he has come from. People like a family man it is very appealing it shows that he has morals and is trust worthy and Bill De Blasio certainly does seem like someone who is true to his word.At 17:36 minutes in his speech he spoke about change and it reminded me of Obama, which makes him seem like he more appealing candidate because it shows that he is for the people. He spoke about how he wants to put an end to racial profiling and that can really appealing to the people because it shows that someone is listening to what they have to say.Bill De Blasio’s speech was strong because he had evidence to back up what he was saying from 11:51 minutes to 12:22 minutes he discussed how the lower class or working class are being forgotten, because the upper class are coming into poorer neighborhoods and they are buying out what little is there. His speech was very well put together, humble, it showed unity and loyalty.
In his speech Joe Lhola spoke about his family and friends/colleagues and his childhood. He spoke about the city being cohere. He brought up the other party from time to time and said that he does no only want to appeal to one group; he wants us to all be in unity. He spoke about taxes and the importance of education to him. He even thanked the NYPD for all of their hard work and took a stand. He also described how he wants to bring down crime in New York.
From 4:00 minutes to 4:15 he described New York City as a city of hope, a place where dreams come true. In a way you were able to understand Lhotas vision of happiness for the city which is togetherness. It’s interesting because when he talked about the other party he made it seem as though they wanted to live in a Utopia land, if you go back to 4:40 to 4:45 you will see him speak about a tale of two cities and how he wants us come together. From his speech I gather that he wants to appeal more to the privileged because he did not really touch base on the lower or poor, he mainly spoke about the middle class. From 4:25 to 5:12 he spoke about how his family struggled and his parents gave up a lot for him to be able to get a good education. He talked about how he plans on making charter schools better. Other than that he did not really touch base on the economic struggles that many lower class are dealing with. When Joe thanked the NYPD at 8:28 he said “we need to keep our streets safe” and in other words showed his ideology that stop and frisk is good because it helps keep the city safe. Towards the end of his speech from 12:40 to 13:05 he specifically said “Cancer and corruption of tsunami sleeves” I found that interesting because to me from his speech he is more on the side of the middle class and upper rather than the poor.
Bill De Blasio’s speech appealed to people more, it was personal and humble. He showed that he genially cares for his voters and has their best interest at heart. He spoke about how he is for the people, mainly the lower class but he still made it known that he cares about the city as a whole. Joe Lhola’s speech appealed more to the middle class. He spoke about unity but to me I don’t see how he wants unity among the city when he is for things like stop and frisk. Many people who are victims of stop and frisk are not going to want to vote for him because they disagree with his belief. You can see the differences in the two speaks and the two men themselves. Hopefully whoever becomes mayor is prereformative.
