City Council open to no-confidence vote against Mayor de Blasio

City Council Speaker Corey Johnson said Thursday he’ll let the body’s legislative process run its course when it comes to a no-confidence vote on Mayor de Blasio.

“Clearly there are people on both sides of the aisle that are fed up with this administration, and I want to be clear that I am extraordinarily frustrated as well,” he said.

But Johnson added that his focus for the next two weeks will be on hammering out a city budget, which will be more challenging than in years past due to revenue shortfalls caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

Johnson said work on the budget has prevented him from talking to colleagues about the no-confidence resolutions ― one from Republican Councilman Eric Ulrich and the other from Democratic Councilman Carlos Menchaca ― that would call on Gov. Cuomo to consider measures to remove de Blasio from City Hall.

“Those will go through the legislative process, and we’ll see what comes of it,” he said. “I do think many of us have big concerns about how the protests were handled, how COVID-19 was handled, but it will go through the legislative process.”
