NYC mayor to mark 100 days in office with speech.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is set to mark his first 100 days in office with a major speech.
De Blasio, who was elected in November, will speak next Thursday, April 10th, at Cooper Union in Manhattan.
De Blasio is the former public advocate and the first Democratic mayor in 20 years.
He's expected to outline his next set of priorities, including a push for more affordable housing
He's spent much of his first 100 days securing funds for his signature universal pre-kindergarten program.
He wanted to raise the money with a tax on the wealthy. But that died in Albany.
Instead it will be funded in the state budget. De Blasio's team believes securing the needed money by any means is a victory.
