Andrew Yang has various reasons he is like, one of his policies for example is to give 500,000 low income New Yorkers $2,000 a month, he wants to appoint a Deputy Mayor for Public Safety working jointly with NYPD launching operations to prevent/combat crime in troubled NY Neighborhoods.not really, NYC is mostly democratic/liberal running mates, however Andrew Yang isn't too bad and wants to sit aside the two party system and work on things to benefit everyone no matter what their political stance is, which is why is highly liked here.
a local representative from NYC, Alexandria Cortez endorse a mayoral candidate, Maya Wiley which she was a former counsel member for the current mayor DeBlasio, and is very high end on the racial thing, which is why she isn't highly liked here, which in itself is a surprise
Fernando Mateo, was supported by Michael Flynn and Trump as an opponent to Wiley.
Wiley isn't bad most dislike her more over the fact that she a counsel member for DeBlasio, so some think this will be a DeBlasio 2.0
anyways, She wants to do the following, called the New Deal New York
-build workforce training sites in uplifting neighborhoods with neighborhood organizations to run training programs
-develop policies that will hire locals in high unemployed and poverty areas to create apprentice jobs
-investing $2 billion in the NYCHA to repair housing and invest in job creating opportunities
-create a centrally managed $10 billion program oversaw by a "Czar" for public works and underserved communities.
-create 100,000 jobs
-recognize that gun violence is because of lack of education + employment opportunities
-launch support programs to reduce crimes in high risk neighborhoods
I will eventually post each candidate and their plans separately
