After leaving the New York City mayorship and a failed bid for Congress, ex-Mayor and failed 2020 presidential candidate Bill de Blasio (D) has announced a new gig after stepping out of the political spotlight.
The Daily Caller reports:
Bill De Blasio is joining the faculty at Harvard University’s Institute of Politics (IOP) as a teaching fellow in the fall of 2022, a little over a month after giving up on his congressional ambitions, the institution announced Wednesday.
De Blasio joins Harvard as part of the university’s Fall 2021 Visiting Fellows Program, which “brings distinguished veterans of public life for a short yet comprehensive stay at the Institute of Politics,” according to its website.
“I am happy to join the IOP to help inspire our nation’s next generation of leaders to find ways to serve in politics and public service, and to build a government that serves working people,” De Blasio said in a press release.
The Harvard Institute of Politics’ interim director Setti D. Warren said he was excited to have De Blasio on faculty to “look for pathways forward on the challenges facing our democracy.”
