Andrew Yang is Wrong for NYC

A general election for any major role in government is akin to a horse race. Many will enter, but there can only be one winner.

This fall, New Yorkers will go to the polls to determine who will be our next Mayor. Among the candidates is businessman and former 2020 Presidential candidate Andrew Yang.

My personal feeling is that he is the wrong person for the job. He has good ideas (universal basic income, for one), but does he have the experience and the ability to follow through on these ideas? I honestly don’t know.

One that makes me question him is the fact that when Covid-19 hit the city last year, Yang and his family moved to the suburbs. While I understand the reasons for the move, it makes me wonder if he can truly handle a major crisis, should he be elected? We need a mayor who will step up, not find an excuse to not do their job.

At this point, I have not decided who I will vote for. But will it be Andrew Yang? Probably not.
