Mayor Mike opens shop in all five boroughs

By Emily Ngo

Michael Bloomberg is expanding his mayoral campaign this weekend as his re-election team opens five campaign offices — one in each borough.

Bloomberg, running as an independent candidate, is still hoping for a spot on the Republican ballot in his quest for a third term, which required the controversial overturning of term limits.

The campaign of city Comptroller Bill Thompson, the billionaire mayor’s likely Democratic opponent in the November race, has an office now open at 321 Broadway, Floor 6. A representative for Thompson on Thursday sidestepped questions on whether the team will introduce branches in the outer boroughs, saying only, “We expect to have support from every neighborhood across the city.”The Bloomberg campaign is inviting voters to stop by for informational meetings at its new offices. They are:

Queens: 116-49 Queens Boulevard, Saturday, 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Bronx: 2542A White Plains Road, Saturday, 12:30 p.m. to 2 p.m.

Staten Island: 2205 Hylan Boulevard, Sunday, 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Manhattan: 111 W. 40th St., Floor 5, Sunday, 12:30 p.m. to 2 p.m.

Brooklyn: 535 Atlantic Ave., Sunday, 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
