THE BRONX - Mayor Bill de Blasio is visiting Washington, D.C. and is scheduled to visit California.  These trips follow other recent visits to Nebraska and Wisconsin.

The mayor's office says his trips are for good reasons, and that they will ultimately help the city.

However, some of de Blasio's critics say he's been out of New York City too much when he should be taking care of business at home.

News 12 asked residents their thoughts on the mayor's travels.
