NEW YORK (FOX5NY) - Members of the Police Benevolent Association gathered Tuesday morning outside a YMCA in Brooklyn where Mayor Bill de Blasio works out.
The frustrated police officers say they plan to protest there and Gracie Mansion for the next several weeks over Hizzoner's failed leadership, poor relationship with the NYPD and refusal to reach a market rate of pay with cops. They shouted "One term mayor" as de Blasio walked into the building.
Approximately a dozen officers were outside Gracie Mansion on Manhattan's Upper East Side by 7 a.m. Some members of the PBA say de Blasio's work ethic should be questioned.
PBA President Pat Lynch says he will oppose de Blasio's campaign re-election.
Despite the protests, the city reports that the crime rate is hovering near record lows in the city.
