Kathryn Garcia at a New York City mayoral campaign event in June in Brooklyn's Bushwick neighborhood. All I want to do is deliver for New York City residents. You've gotta actually lead from the front, and you've gotta follow the data and make sure that we're using tactics that are effective at stopping and preventing crime. You've gotta walk the walk, it's not just talk the talk. [People who've lost trust in the police] have gotta see it, they've gotta be talking to police officers, rebuilding that relationship.

CNBC reviewed records of donations from leaders on Wall Street who contributed to organizations supporting New York's Democratic mayoral candidates. Two pro-Yang groups, a super PAC and a separate 527 group, received over $3 million combined from financial executives. Wall Street executives gave more than $2 million to a super PAC backing one of their former colleagues, ex-Citigroup executive Ray McGuire. The big money donations demonstrate how important the race is to Wall Street. McGuire came into the race with many expecting the Wall Street money to largely flow toward his candidacy after his tenure at Citigroup.

Is Bill de Blasio Secretly Backing Eric Adams for Mayor?

Even Mr. Adams would not necessarily rank Mr. de Blasio very highly. “I have not sought his endorsement,” Mr. Adams said at a campaign stop last week, distancing himself from the mayor when asked about their relationship. “I speak with him about issues that impact the city: public safety, education, housing.”Still, some people argue that Mr. Adams should be viewed as a natural successor to Mr. de Blasio. She endorsed Mr. Adams for mayor and sees many similarities between the two men. “He’s the natural successor,” she said of Mr. Adams.

The front-runner in the race for mayor of New York City, Eric Adams, took aim at his rival Kathryn Garcia on Monday as the campaign entered its final week and a new poll showed that the two candidates were the leading contenders. Mr. Adams, the Brooklyn borough president, clearly sees Ms. Garcia as a threat: He held a news conference with sanitation workers on Monday to draw attention to allegations that women and minority workers at the city agency received unequal pay. Ms. Garcia ran the Sanitation Department until last year, when she resigned to run for mayor. Ms. Garcia, for her part, declared the mayoral contest a two-person race and defended her record. “So I guess he knows that we’re in a two-person race.”

New York City Early Voting Begins for Primary Election

Voters trickled into polling sites in New York City over the weekend to pick the next mayor in the first big test of the city’s ranked-choice voting system. The primaries in the mayoral race and other local races, including for comptroller and dozens of city council seats, take place on June 22, but early voting in all the contests began Saturday at some locations. Under the new voting system, voters can rank their top five candidates in the mayoral primary and in most other races in preferential order. She ranked five Democratic mayoral candidates. “But I ranked them because it said the city would save money if we didn’t have to go back and vote.” Ranked-choice voting avoids potentially costly runoff elections if no candidate wins the majority of votes.

The Strokes held a concert fundraiser for NYC mayoral candidate Maya Wiley Saturday night. AOC opened for the show, and was later seen dancing with Wiley during The Strokes' set. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and NYC mayoral candidate Maya Wiley were seen dancing at a Strokes concert in New York City Saturday night. The concert was a fundraiser for Wiley, with all proceeds going towards the civil rights attorney's mayoral campaign, according to NME. The Strokes concert was the first indoor full capacity concert of its size in New York City since the pandemic happened, according to NME.

Kathryn Garcia Is Fine With Second Place

Brooklyn, N.Y.As they jostle to get ahead of each other in a crowded and anarchic primary, the Democratic candidates for New York mayor resemble a cluster of bumper cars. On other days, the lead has been with Kathryn Garcia, former head of the city’s Sanitation Department, and even Maya Wiley, who bounced close to the top of the heap this week after receiving an endorsement from Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Viewed another way, no candidate in this perverse mayoral election has consistently led in the opinion polls—which this year have been desultory, even a little derelict. To be fair, the pollsters have struggled not only with canvassing opinion amid a pandemic, but also with the novel form of ranked-choice voting introduced for this election. How do you conduct a call in which you ask an already impatient stranger—finger ready to disconnect—who his second, third and fourth choices are?

"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.

The top five Democratic candidates in the race to be the next mayor of New York City will face off Thursday night in a televised debate two days before early voting begins. Ms. Wiley was ranked as the top choice by 17% of the voters, the poll showed. The primary will take place on June 22 but early voting begins at select polling locations on Saturday. The primary will be the first time ranked-choice voting will be used in a citywide race. With Democrats vastly outnumbering Republicans in New York City, the winner of the Democratic primary is considered the favorite to be the next mayor.

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.

The third official debate among major Democratic candidates for mayor of New York City takes place Thursday evening from 7 to 8 p.m. Unlike the two previous debates, only four of the leading candidates are set to attend: Kathryn Garcia, Scott M. Stringer, Maya Wiley and Andrew Yang. Another front-runner, Eric Adams, also was invited, but said he would attend a vigil for a 10-year-old who was fatally shot in Queens instead. The event is the last televised debate before the start of early voting on Saturday ahead of the June 22 primary. Here are some of the ways you can watch and follow the debate:

Yang's second political campaign has resurrected discussions around what it means to represent the racial group in city politics. I think that people have to be true to themselves, and do what they think is best,” he said. Surrounded by the diversity of the city for decades, identity did not become a focal point of his political career until recently, with the rise of anti-Asian racism amid the pandemic, including several violent attacks in New York City. "My experience as an Asian American has changed over the last number of months, as it has for just about all of us. For the candidate, one moment that underscored the importance of physical representation was when he saw himself on stage.

A top NYC mayoral candidate's official residence is in question following a report from Politico NY. A mysterious saga emerged in the New York City mayoral race on Tuesday evening, with Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams's official residence coming into question. A campaign adviser told Politico that Adams and his partner did not see each other during the height of the pandemic. He signed his share over to another owner, and the campaign will be updating documents accordingly, the adviser told Politico. The Adams campaign has depicted the candidate's odd sleep habits as an indicator of how hard he works for New Yorkers.

Mr. Adams, a former police captain, has topped a number of recent polls as he presses a message focused on public safety, but the race appears fluid even in the final days. A Spectrum News NY1/Ipsos poll released earlier this week showed Mr. Adams leading the Democratic field, followed by Andrew Yang, the former presidential candidate, and Kathryn Garcia, the former sanitation commissioner. Jumaane D. Williams, the New York City public advocate, endorsed Ms. Wiley on Wednesday. Questions about how Mr. Adams spends his time when not on the campaign trail injected a new element of uncertainty into the race and offered fresh fodder for his opponents. “Eric Adams has a problematic record of not being fully honest or transparent with the voters of New York,” Ms. Garcia said in a statement on Wednesday.

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.

Eric Adams Draws Fire for Skipping Mayoral Debate
  + stars: | 2021-06-08 | by ( Anne Barnard | ) www.nytimes.com sentiment -0.89   time to read: 1 min
Turbulence again rocked the New York City mayoral race on Tuesday, as Eric Adams, a leading contender, came under fire from two directions, even as two rivals, Kathryn Garcia and Maya Wiley, displayed signs of growing support. Mr. Adams, the Brooklyn borough president, first drew criticism for his decision to skip a new debate among the top candidates scheduled for Thursday; he will instead attend a vigil for a 10-year-old killed in gun violence in Queens. Then questions emerged over where Mr. Adams actually lives, after Politico reported some inconsistencies in public records that suggested that he did not live in the Brooklyn apartment where he had registered to run for mayor. During the pandemic, Mr. Adams has often slept in Brooklyn Borough Hall, a habit that he has apparently continued in recent weeks. He also co-owns an apartment in Fort Lee, N.J.

Kathryn Garcia’s first job in city government was at 22 years old as an intern in New York City’s Department of Sanitation in 1993, answering correspondence and doing data analytics. Ms. Garcia entered the race in January, touting her management prowess. Early polls of the mayoral race showed she had little support in a field of more than a dozen candidates. But recent endorsements from the editorial boards of the New York Times and the New York Daily News boosted her profile. A May 26 poll showed her in the lead in the race, holding a 3-percentage-point edge over Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams.

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.

Native New Yorker and U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, one of the Democratic Party's leading progressive voices, on Saturday endorsed Maya Wiley's bid to become the next mayor of New York City. The New York Democrat's nod could give a boost to Wiley, a former lawyer for New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, who has lagged behind Democratic frontrunners Eric Adams, Andrew Yang and Kathryn Garcia. "We have an option of a candidate who can center people, racial justice, economic justice and climate justice," Ocasio-Cortez said during her announcement in New York City. "[Wiley] didn't just come up to run for mayor but has experience and has a lifetime of dedication to this." "She will be a progressive in Gracie Mansion," Ocasio-Cortez said, referring to the mayor's official residence.

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.

The packed race has so far been dominated by former presidential candidate Andrew Yang, who was the main target of criticism at a televised debate earlier this week. Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams, another leading contender and a moderate Democrat, slammed Ocasio-Cortez’s endorsement of Wiley. “They are putting slogans and politics in front of public safety and would endanger the lives of New Yorkers,” Adams, a former police officer, said in a statement.

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.
