The mayor called for the creation of 250,000 new private sector jobs.

Bloomberg also talked about reforming the childcare system in the wake of Nixzmary Brown's death. He wants to replace the emergency intake system so children can be protected from abuse. Another goal Bloomberg included in his address was to work with other states and cities to take illegal guns off Bronx streets.
