Slumping De Blasio Changing Face

NEW YORK — Mayor Bill de Blasio is marking the 14th anniversary of the crash of an airliner into a New York City neighborhood that killed 265 people, and this year he is on time.

In 2014, de Blasio outraged mourners when he arrived late to the annual memorial service in the Rockaways for those killed in the American Airlines Flight 587 crash.

The incident highlighted his tendency to be tardy. But on Nov. 12 he arrived more than 30 minutes early.

The Mayor has made a committed effort to be more punctual. And he and his aides have also adopted new tactics to control his image amid slumping poll numbers.

He is trying to bypass the media by connecting directly to voters by curtailing freewheeling press conferences and starting to host town halls.
