One of the things that the government is supposed to do is keep its citizens safe, which means plowing public streets. New Yorkers, you got what you deserve...hate to say it...

No, government's job is NOT to "keep its citizens safe". The citizens CAN put the task of dealing with roads, snow removal, garbage, etc, on the list of "services" their bending together and forming a municipal government can take care of. NOW.. having done this, the citizes of ALL parts of the city need to hold those responsible for the shortfall tob the fire. And NOWHERE I can think of would it fall to the mayor personally to decide where the plows work, and where they do not.
