Bloomberg headed to D.C. with family of late Obama aide
Mayor Michael Bloomberg is headed to Washington for the inauguration of Barack Obama, and he is bringing some special guests.
Obama will take the mother and the widow of Terence Tolbert, 44, a city Department of Education employee and Obama campaign aide who died of a heart attack two days before the election.
He was on leave from his city job and was working as the Obama campaign director in Nevada.
Tolberts mother, Carolyn, and his wife, Freida, will sit with Bloomberg at the swearing-in Tuesday.
Tomorrow, Bloomberg will address the U.S. Conference of Mayors.
