Bloomberg Forwards His Calls

Michael Bloomberg gives accessibility a new meaning. His home phone number is listed in the white pages (and on Yahoo People Search).

Bloomberg boasted at a news conference that a woman had called him with a problem, which had people dialing for the mayor at home. His home phone would get around 100 calls a day. Now his phone number (212-772-1081), leads you to the following message:

“Hi, this is Mike Bloomberg. I'm sorry I'm not home right now. If this is an emergency, please dial 911. If you're a NYC citizen with a concern, please call 311,”

I wonder if he knows his refrigerator is running.
