Congratulations are in order for New York Mayor Bill de Blasio. On Thursday, PETA named him its 2014 Person of the Year.

The group honored the new mayor for his opposing horse-drawn carriages in Manhattan’s Central Park, promoting his city as the country’s vegan capital, and his work against circus cruelty (and he also promotes brown bin composting, too).
