Jan. 24, 2019 - New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio addresses the mayors.  De Blasio made news on Jan. 8 when he announced a plan to guarantee health care for every New Yorker.  (According to the press release, "The plan will serve the 600,000 New Yorkers without insurance by strengthening NYC’s public health insurance option, MetroPlus, and guaranteeing anyone ineligible for insurance – including undocumented New Yorkers – has direct access to NYC Health + Hospitals’ physicians, pharmacies and mental health and substance abuse services through a new program called NYC Care (>)).  De Blasio has not laid the groundwork for a presidential run and has seemed more interested in pushing the 2020 debate in a progressive direction than in entering the race as a candidate.  Nonetheless, on Jan. 13 he told CNN that he has not ruled out running.
