Tell Me Things Have Not Changed

(Mayor Hostetler – Film ‘Broken City’)

Tell me things have not changed.

When I was elected mayor,

this was a broken city - broken.

Step by step,

I have been getting it fixed.

Bolton Village is just another one of these steps.

Tell me things haven’t changed.

I just stood before you all and told you we have a $3 billion surplus

Tell me things haven’t changed.

No other mayor in the

history of this great city

has been able to stand in front of the people

and tell them that!

Tell me who changed ...

Leaving home with your child tomorrow

Tell me things haven’t changed.

When you step out of your house in the morning

With your children and you take them to the parks at the five boroughs,

do you feel safe?

Yes, you do feel safe, because I get your letters,

And I know you do.

That’s us working together, getting it fixed.

Tell me things haven’t changed.
