United Federation of Teachers President Michael Mulgrew thinks he knows who’s boss when it comes to the city’s top Democratic elected officials. He believes he is.
Witness the ultimatum he issued to mayoral hopeful Christine Quinn: She can fire her political consultant or she can kiss goodbye his support in next year’s Democratic primary.
Mulgrew is in a lather because Quinns’ PR firm, SKDKnickerbocker, took on as a client StudentsFirstNY. Founded by, among others, former Schools Chancellor Joel Klein, the group aims to promote school reform by countering the UFT’s influence in next year’s mayoral election.
