Bloomberg: I Want Kelly To Stay In NYC

NEW YORK (WCBS 880) - Does the man in charge of the NYPD have a new job in his future?

Mayor Bloomberg is decidedly unenthusiastic about the idea of Police Commissioner Ray Kelly being tapped to head the FBI, reported WCBS 880's Rich Lamb.

"Ray Kelly served his time in Washington and did a great job there," said Bloomberg. "I, for one, would like him...expect him to stay for the next 1,023 days."

Director Robert Muller is planning to step down after his ten-year term this September, and Kelly has been suggested to the top spot by New York Senator Chuck Schumer.
