Yesterday June 17th I outlined the choice before New Yorkers in the race for Mayor as a contest between results and rhetoric and leadership versus pandering. On issue after issue, from affordable housing to education and economic development to balancing the budget, I've delivered real results for New Yorkers. The greatest indication of what someone will be able to achieve can be found in what they’ve already accomplished.
My ideas and vision for New Yorkers aren't just talking points, they are backed by real results for real people and rooted in the desire to see New York's middle class grow and prosper.
This election is not about who can get the most press, or give the most pithy sound bite. It’s not about who can yell the loudest or be the most critical.
This election is about who has the ability to lead our city – to help the middle class that so desperately wants to continue to raise their families here or grow old here – to feel safe here, to afford to live here.
It’s about who understands the problems of the middle class and has the know-how, the energy, the toughness, the vision and the compassion to make a difference and know who you are fighting for. And if I’m lucky enough to become our next Mayor, that’s how I’ll spend every day. Delivering results for New Yorkers. Holding nothing back.
New Yorkers work every moment of every day to get things done. They deserve no less from their Mayor. That’s why I’m running. That’s what this election is about. And I hope to spend every day of the next four years, not just making promises, not just holding press conferences, but delivering for those New Yorkers, working with them side by side, to make our great city even greater.
