Staten Island Fever with Jimmy Oddo

Few New York City elected officials speak with as much candor and passion as Staten Island Borough President Jimmy Oddo. From examining the mistakes made nearly five years after Superstorm Sandy wrecked parts of his borough, to drilling down on the failures of the New York City “perma-government”, Oddo certainly does not pull any punches. We ventured to Staten Island this week to chat with Oddo on a wide range of topics, from Sandy recovery to the borough’s infrastructure needs. Oddo also explains why his endorsement of fellow Staten Islander Nicole Malliotakis for mayor won’t affect his productive relationship with Bill de Blasio.
