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.

State legislation to legalize marijuana would bring a measure of fairness to communities that have historically borne the brunt of drug enforcement laws, New York City officials said on Monday. “I think this legislation in Albany has achieved a lot of what we hoped to see,” New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said at an unrelated briefing Monday. Under the bill, taxes generated from marijuana sales would be deposited in a fund to cover the administration of the state’s marijuana program. A 9% state tax would be assessed at the retail level, with an additional local tax rate of 4% of the retail price also assessed at the point of sale. A spokesman for the New York City police union declined to comment on the proposed law.

NEW YORK — A high-ranking New York Police Department official accused of posting hateful messages online has opted to retire days after the department said it was suspending him without pay. An NYPD spokesperson confirmed Monday that Deputy Inspector James Kobel, the former head of the department’s workplace discrimination office, had submitted retirement papers. NYPDKobel was removed as commanding officer of the Equal Employment Opportunity Division and reassigned to the transit unit. Kobel denied being “Clouseau” when the posts came to light but acknowledged the fiasco would likely end his career. City Council investigators linked the “Clouseau” messages to Kobel by matching information in them to publicly available details about Kobel’s life and career.
