New Yorkers Choosing Between 2 Visions For City

Nov 5, 2013

New Yorkers are getting ready to select their first new mayor in 12 years.

Election Day is the beginning of the city's farewell to Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who helped define the city since 2001. Voters now have a choice between two different visions for the future.

Republican Joe Lhota, a former aide to Rudy Giuliani, largely wants to continue the policies of Bloomberg and his former boss. Democrat Bill de Blasio, the public advocate, wants a break from the Bloomberg years and is calling for improved community-police relations and a tax increase on the rich.

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani is endorsing Bob Turner in the three-way Republican primary to take on Democratic Senator Kirsten Gillibrand. WAMC’s Dave Lucas has details…

Giuliani said Wednesday the New York City congressman whose district will disappear next year due to redistricting is the only candidate who can beat Gillibrand in the November general election.
