New York City has embarked on the biggest ranked-choice voting election in American history with the Democratic primary for mayor on Tuesday. Plenty of New Yorkers are looking for advice on how to fill out their ballots to help their favorite candidates — or to try to block other candidates they don’t want in City Hall. As a longtime planner and champion of ranked-choice voting, I’ve pulled together some guidance for marking your ballot for a variety of scenarios involving the mayoral candidates, in particular Eric Adams, Maya Wiley, Kathryn Garcia, Andrew Yang and Scott Stringer. Among the upsides: In Tuesday’s primaries, races up and down the ballot have multiple candidates of color and women, and in ranked-choice voting, none of them have to worry about split votes. This helps to explain why RepresentWomen and FairVote show sharply rising success for underrepresented candidates.

New York City police often face few consequences for violating use-of-force guidelines. Using lawsuit data from and recently published data from the Civilian Complaint Review Board (CCRB), Insider found thousands of cases where police allegedly broke department guidelines and the prohibitions around stop-and-frisk. Meanwhile, as the New York Times reported in 2021, police unions oppose even minor reforms; major New York City unions sued after the city instituted a ban on chokeholds.

But according to CCRB data, 18 officers have been accused of conducting a body cavity search since 2018, and only one of those officers faced disciplinary consequences.

Eight candidates to be the next mayor of New York City — the country's largest metropolis — sparred over housing, homelessness and education Wednesday evening in the third and final debate before next week's Democratic primary. Whoever wins the primary Tuesday is likely to win the Nov. 2 general election, given the city's large Democratic voter base. However, turnout tends to be low in New York City primaries. The two-hour live, in-person debate was moderated by NBC New York, Telemundo, Politico, the Citizens Budget Commission and the New York Urban League. All but three raised their hands in support; Stringer, Morales and Wiley said no.

(Reuters) - The eight leading candidates seeking the Democratic nomination for New York City mayor exchanged jabs on Wednesday over public safety, housing and homelessness at the final televised debate before Tuesday’s primary election. Adams piled on, calling Yang’s plan “Monopoly money.”Much of the debate’s early clashes focused on public safety, which has been the No. 1 issue during the campaign thanks to a spike in violent crime around the city. Adams, Yang and former sanitation chief Kathryn Garcia, considered more moderate candidates, have proposed beefing up the police department in response. Adams, Wiley, Garcia and Yang are widely seen as the top four candidates, based on public polling.

New York City Mayoral Candidates Spar in Heated Final Debate

New York City mayoral candidates came out swinging in the final Democratic debate before the June 22 primary, lacing into one another over their plans for reducing crime and improving quality of life after the Covid-19 pandemic. Thursday night’s televised debate featured the top eight Democratic candidates and capped weeks of intense campaigning and attacks on the front-runners. The candidates made their pitch for why they should lead the city while taking flak from their opponents. City Comptroller Scott Stringer, who has highlighted his government experience while campaigning, ridiculed Mr. Yang for not having any sense of the cost of such a plan. “Not one specific idea, not one specific plan.”Throughout the two-hour debate, the candidates tried to differentiate themselves on a range of topics, from the desegregation of schools to affordable housing.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez released a video on Wednesday detailing her endorsement of Democratic New York City mayoral candidate Maya Wiley. With less than a week to go before the city's Democratic primary, early voting is already underway, and the crowded field is further complicated by the city's debut of ranked choice voting. Ocasio-Cortez appeared with Wiley at a campaign rally outside City Hall in Manhattan last week to announce that Wiley would be her first choice of candidates in the city's new ranked-choice electoral system.

Mr. Adams defended himself, saying that he would not allow stop and frisk to be used to abuse people. “Mentally ill homeless men are changing the character of our neighborhoods,” said Mr. Yang, who lives near Times Square. Later on in the debate, Mr. Yang returned to his original point. After Ms. Wiley criticized Mr. Adams on stop and frisk, Mr. McGuire and Ms. Morales got into a dispute over the defund-the-police movement. Mr. Yang criticized Mr. Adams for once telling off-duty officers to take their guns to churches to keep them safe.

The primary will be the first time ranked-choice voting will be used in a citywide race.

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.

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.

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.

“We need a plainclothes unit to go after illegal guns,” Mr. Adams says, adding that he’d fund it by eliminating clerical jobs in the department. We hired them to go after violent crime.”Like his opponents, Mr. Adams opposes widespread stop and frisk. “It is unconscionable that three out of four shooters are still on the loose in Brooklyn.”Mr. Yang’s critics, including Mr. Adams, write him off as unserious. That’s the case for many attendees at an Asian-American rally for Mr. Adams in the Flushing neighborhood of Queens on a Sunday morning.

Five weeks after an allegation of unwanted sexual advances upended Scott M. Stringer’s New York City mayoral campaign, a second woman is accusing him of sexual harassment and making unwanted advances when she said she worked for Mr. Stringer nearly three decades ago. The woman, Teresa Logan, said that she was a waitress and tended bar at Uptown Local, an establishment on the Upper West Side that was co-founded and run in part by Mr. Stringer. The first interactions, she said, took place in the spring of 1992, when Mr. Stringer was 32 and she was 18. Image Teresa Logan in 1992. In a statement, Mr. Stringer, 61 and now the city comptroller, said he had “no memory” of Ms. Logan, now 47.

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.

NYC mayoral hopeful Andrew Yang held a press conference dedicated to anti-Asian hate on Tuesday. Yang responded to a New York Daily News cartoon of him in Times Square and a recent subway attack. He also warned campaign rivals over taking advantage of an "anti-Asian sentiment" in the city. Yang specifically referenced a spokesman for City Comptroller Scott Stringer saying "We welcome Andrew Yang to the mayor's race — and to New York City" back in January, but otherwise refrained from calling out any competitors directly. The borough president's campaign also released a statement earlier in the race, saying, "Eric doesn't need a tour of Brownsville.

When New York City Comptroller Scott Stringer announced last September he was running for mayor, he was widely considered the Democratic front-runner, positioning himself as the progressive candidate with a long history of public service and the managerial experience needed to lead an economic recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic. Nine months later and with a June 22 primary approaching, Mr. Stringer’s campaign hasn’t picked up the steam it hoped. Mr. Stringer’s campaign has also been clouded by sexual-misconduct accusations from a lobbyist who said he groped her and made other unwanted advances two decades ago, when she was a 30-year-old volunteering on his unsuccessful 2001 campaign for public advocate. The lobbyist, Jean Kim, last month filed an official complaint with the New York state attorney general’s office, asking it to investigate her allegations. A spokeswoman for the office said it reviewed the complaint and determined it lacks jurisdiction to investigate.
