Who will be the next elected mayor of New York City?
Right now, the mayor of NYC is Democratic politician Bill de Blasio. Of course, opinions vary, but we can say that his terms were successful, since they re-elected him once. That means that he has been the mayor since 2014, serving two terms – that also means he cannot run for a third one, because of the same limitations that presidents have on their terms. So, if it is not him then who can be the next elected mayor of New York City?
There are some notable candidates. Eric Adams – Brooklyn Borough President –, Shaun Donovan, who is the former Director of the U.S. OMB, or former Commissioner of the NYC Department of Sanitation, Kathryn Garcia. The former Citigroup executive, Raymond McGuire is also in the run. So is the former social services non-profit CEO, Dianne Morales. They also mentioned the founder of Guardian Angels, Curtis Sliwa, and NYC Comptroller, Scott Stringer. Last, but not least, they might consider Maya Wiley – former counsel to Blasio –, and a former presidential candidate and entrepreneur, Andrew Yang.
