Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “New Yorkers Set Post Pandemic Course in Mayoral Primary Tuesday” – below is their description.
New Yorkers emerging from more than a year of pandemic misery will cast ballots Tuesday for a new mayor who will determine the city’s path to recovery. Voters will choose from a wide-ranging field that includes an ex-cop, a failed presidential candidate, a Wall Street executive and several former city bureaucrats.
The Democratic primary is garnering most of the attention, given that the winner of that contest will likely prevail in November against the Republican nominee in the overwhelmingly Democratic city.
The campaign has centered on a clash between two vastly different approaches to a recovery — those who want to improve the mechanics of government as residents emerge from lockdown and fill streets, office buildings and restaurants, and those who say the city must keep its focus on ending inequality, echoing the theme that got term-limited Mayor Bill de Blasio elected in 2013.Bloomberg Quicktake: Now YouTube Channel
