Despite what Sen. Charles Schumer says, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg wants his police commissioner Ray Kelly to stay put, according to the Huffington Post. 
Schumer the other day told the New York Daily News that he’s going to push for Kelly to succeed FBI Director Robert S. Mueller III, who finishes up his 10-year term in September.
Bloomberg isn’t disputing that Kelly would make a good FBI director. It’s just that he’s darn happy with what he’s doing in New York.
“Ray Kelly served his time in Washington and did a great job there,” Bloomberg said, according to the Huffington Post. “I, for one, would like him…expect him to stay for the next 1,023 days.”
Kelly was the undersecretary for enforcement at the Department of the treasury from 1996 to 1998, the Huffington Post noted, and he was commissioner of the US Customs Service from 1998 to 2001.
The website said Bloomberg cited low crime rates and effective counter-terrorism as reasons for his fondness for Kelly.
