Democratic candidate for New York City Mayor Maya Wiley speaks to voters and media while campaigning at the Co-op City housing complex in the Bronx borough of New York City, New York, U.S., June 7, 2021. REUTERS/Mike Segar/File PhotoFor months, a trio of liberal Democratic candidates in New York City's mayoral race has vied for the mantle of progressive standard-bearer in a crowded field. "New York is not a progressive city," said Christina Greer, a political science professor at Fordham University. "We know there are a lot of Democratic voters who call themselves progressive and support progressive values but think AOC is a little too far left." "She's clearly the progressive candidate that can win in this race," said Gabby Seay, the political director for the union, which represents healthcare workers.

Eric Adams, the former NYPD captain and president of the Borough of Brooklyn, answered questions about his residency status on Wednesday, allowing local reporters to tour his Central Brooklyn home. "If I'm not at Borough Hall, I'm here," Adams, a Democrat, told reporters inside his ground-floor, red-brick home. The tour came after a Politico New York report raised serious questions about Adams' main residency, which is a requirement to be mayor of the city. Adams said he has used the New Jersey property occasionally but said the Brooklyn home is his main residence. Adams, who has criticized Yang, saying he left the city during the pandemic, was joined by his 25-year-old son, Jordan, during the tour.

“Many people are surprised to learn a number of iconic places in our city are named after individuals who held people as slaves,” Mr. DuBois said. Rikers Island, which houses New York City’s main jail complex, is named for the Riker family, which includes Richard Riker, who sent Black Americans into slavery. Ms. Wiley was able to cast herself as the leading progressive candidate in the debate, helped in part by Mr. Stringer’s scandals and Dianne Morales’s absence on the debate stage. Ms. Kramer interjected to ask if she would take the officers’ guns away from them. Ms. Kramer tried one last time: “But will you take the guns away from the N.Y.P.D.

The New York City mayoral race is one of the most consequential political contests in a generation, with immense challenges awaiting the winner. June 9, 2021Dianne Morales arrived at a racial justice protest in April, as she had done many times before. She was a familiar sight at the Barclays Center, hugging friends and greeting supporters, while a handful of aides flanked her. One speaker warned that the protest was not a “campaign stop.” So Ms. Morales asked a campaign staffer, outfitted in a loud purple T-shirt emblazoned with “DIANNE MORALES FOR N.Y.C. From the beginning of her campaign for mayor, Ms. Morales set out to establish herself as the activist-candidate-next-door, the person riding the bus instead of advertising on the side of it.

I didn’t even feel it when Dr. Chester pierced my arm.”New York was about to get a second chance. Wall Street boomed and property values soared, drawing foreign investors who parked their fortunes in constantly appreciating New York City real estate. Mayor Bill de Blasio, now in his second and final term, has proposed the biggest budget in New York City history. Of the 100 biggest school districts in America, New York City’s school system already spends the most per capita. The mayoral candidate Kathryn Garcia, formerly the commissioner for the New York City Sanitation Department, pulled ahead in the polls in late May.

With two weeks to go before the Democratic primary, the progressive left has seemed to have coalesced around a single candidate, relying on a time-honored technique: self-elimination. The candidate is Maya Wiley, the former counsel to Mayor Bill de Blasio. He was an original progressive favorite, until two women came forward with decades-old allegations of inappropriate sexual advances, causing many progressives leaders to withdraw their support. Next to run into trouble was Dianne Morales, the former nonprofit executive whose campaign mutinied, tried to unionize and then accused her of union-busting. It was a bad look for a woman who has run on empowering the grass roots.

New York City police faced criticism from Democratic mayoral candidates after they cracked down while enforcing a curfew in a city park Saturday evening. The NYPD couldn’t protect him, but they could march through a park in riot gear, terrorizing people to enforce an arbitrary curfew. Mayoral candidate Andrew Yang, a former presidential candidate who has called for more police presence on subways, said: "Washington Square Park has always been a place to gather and enjoy summer nights. Sending officers in riot gear and militarizing a public park should never be the answer." The city Parks Department, the Washington Square Park Conservatory and the mayor's office also did not respond to requests for comment.

In a weak field, Kathryn Garcia stands out as the candidate best prepared to run New York City. In a race that was supposed to be a clash between progressive and moderate visions for the city, Garcia has been managing to sidestep that fight with a message about competence. "Garcia gets it done" is her slogan, and she's widely praised for her track record as a manager in unglamorous city agencies including sanitation, environmental protection, and the New York City Housing Authority. Garcia does not have a lot of charisma, nor does she have an especially grand ideological vision. For eight years, New York City has had a mayor who seems bored.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has endorsed civil rights attorney Maya Wiley for New York City mayor. In endorsing Wiley, Ocasio-Cortez said that "we need a city by and for working people." The endorsement could give Wiley a major boost over the other progressive candidates in the race. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, one of the most prominent progressive voices in the country, on Saturday endorsed Maya Wiley in the New York City mayoral race, imploring voters to "come together as a movement." "If we don't come together as a movement, we will get a New York City built by and for billionaires, and we need a city by and for working people," Ms. Ocasio-Cortez said.

The leading Democratic contenders for New York City mayor, former presidential candidate Andrew Yang and Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams, faced harsh attacks from each other and a half dozen rivals during a televised debate on Wednesday. "We know that you've been investigated for corruption everywhere you've gone," Yang said, calling Adams "unprincipled." 1/3 Andrew Yang, Democratic candidate for mayor of New York City, speaks during a rally against Asian hate crimes following the May 31, 2021 unprovoked attack on a 55 year old Asian woman, in Manhattan's Chinatown district of New York City, U.S., June 2, 2021. Yang responded by defending his experience as a surrogate for national Democrats, including President Joe Biden, during last year's election. The candidates spent much of the two-hour debate clashing over policing and crime, with polls showing public safety is voters’ top concern.

What to Watch For in the New York Mayoral Debate

The second official debate among the eight major Democratic candidates for mayor of New York City takes place Wednesday from 7 to 9 p.m. The state of the race now also looks different in several ways from the last debate. The campaign of the most left-leaning candidate in the field, Ms. Morales, is facing internal strife and disillusion. And Ms. Garcia, the former sanitation commissioner, has gained traction in the limited polling available, placing her as a front-runner alongside Mr. Yang and Mr. Adams. Other candidates, like Ms. Wiley, are looking to build similar momentum.

The last debate was barely three weeks ago, but since then, the contours of the race have changed dramatically. Eric Adams, the Brooklyn borough president, has also taken swipes at Ms. Garcia — a reflection of her standing in the race. Public polling remains sparse and highly unreliable, but there is a consensus that Mr. Yang and Mr. Adams have been front-runners throughout the race, though Mr. Adams appears to have pulled ahead of Mr. Yang in some recent surveys. (Mr. Adams, for his part has long been critical of Mr. In the last debate, Maya D. Wiley, a former counsel to Mr. de Blasio, sought to put Mr. Adams on the defensive over his record on stop-and-frisk policing tactics.

“Think about all of the favors that Eric had to trade to get to this point, climbing the ladder over this last number of years, scheming about his run, thinking, ‘Oh, this is going to be my big chance,’” Mr. Yang said, speaking at his campaign office in Bensonhurst. The last debate was defined by public safety more than any other issue, with candidates battling over whether to add more police to the subways, and Ms. Wiley and Mr. Adams tangling over his record on the policing tactic of stop-and-frisk. Mr. Yang, Mr. Adams, Ms. Garcia and Raymond J. McGuire, a former Citi executive, are considered to be relative moderates in the liberal field, especially on issues of public safety and dealings with the business community. Ms. Wiley, Scott M. Stringer, the city comptroller, and Dianne Morales, a former nonprofit executive, have competed with each other to emerge as the left-wing standard-bearer in the race, supporting, by varying amounts, sweeping cuts to the Police Department’s budget and staking out a range of other left-wing positions. The battle for the left has grown increasingly muddled over the last month or so.

But without a front-running Hispanic candidate in the race, the political demographic is considered to be mostly up for grabs. “You have so many candidates running for mayor, and only one is really a Latina,” said the longtime political strategist, Luis A. Miranda Jr. (Kathryn Garcia, the former sanitation commissioner, is white, though her ex-husband is of Puerto Rican descent and she has referenced the fact that her children are half Puerto Rican.) “You really need validators from our community that are telling you, ‘So-and-so is good for the Latino community, so-and-so is good for the neighborhood you live in,’” Mr. Miranda said. (Neither Mr. Miranda nor his son, the actor and composer Lin-Manuel Miranda, has endorsed a candidate in the race.)

Ms. van Kessel had previously worked with Ms. Morales at the social services arm of Phipps Houses, a housing development group. Mr. Dukes could not be reached for comment, and Ms. van Kessel did not respond to requests for comment.

It was the first debate before the June 22 primary in which the candidates could explain their visions to voters. However, turnout tends to be low in New York City primaries. "Safety is not synonymous with policing," Morales said, adding that the city has one of the largest police departments in the country. "My administration would reflect the incredible diversity of our city," Yang said. Donovan picked Wiley, Yang and McGuire picked Garcia, and Wiley picked Morales.

Ms. Garcia, a former sanitation commissioner, staked out a middle ground on Thursday, saying, “We do need to respond when the M.T.A. says we need more cops in the subway. That does not mean we’re not sending mental health professionals into the subway as well.”Mr. Adams and Mr. Yang have opposed “defunding” the police, and on Thursday night Mr. Adams repeated his call for a reinstituted unit of plainclothes police officers to target gang activity in the city. “​We have to deal with intervention,” he said, “and stop the flow of guns into the city,” adding, “We have to deal with this real, pervasive handgun problem.”In one of the debate’s fiercer exchanges, Ms. Wiley called Mr. Adams an apologist for stop-and-frisk policing. That prompted him to counter that he was actually a “leading voice against the abuse of stop-and-frisk” and that Ms. Wiley had showed a “failure of understanding law enforcement.”

FILE PHOTO: Andrew Yang, Democratic candidate for mayor of New York City, speaks after being endorsed by U.S. Congresswoman Grace Meng (D-NY) in the Queens borough of New York, U.S., May 10, 2021. “I want people to look around our city and say that things are cleaner, things are safer, things are more vibrant, the opportunities are back - there’s a sense of optimism back in New York City,” Yang said at a campaign appearance on Monday. Similar to his presidential campaign, Yang has proposed a number of innovations, including a basic income of $2,000 a year to 500,000 poor residents. “To move forward, we cannot continue being derailed by the dangerous and violent behavior in our city,” Adams told reporters on Monday in Manhattan. “People aren’t going to come back to work on mass transit if they’re going to get mugged,” said Kathryn Wylde, who heads the Partnership for New York City, a prominent business organization.

The topics of crime and police reform came up early, and quickly became the clearest line dividing the candidates. Moderates like Andrew Yang drew sharp contrasts with more progressive candidates like Maya Wiley. “Let me be clear, defund the police is the wrong approach for New York City,” Mr. Yang said. But Ms. Wiley and Dianne Morales argued in favor of shifting resources away from the police.

So I think the way we've been doing economic development actually perpetuates inequities because it's led so much by corporations and corporate profit. Morales campaignCan you walk me through how the basics of things like a bidding process would work? I think that there's something important about demystifying the concepts for people and not letting fear be the driver.
