The former Bronx Borough President Adolfo Carrión today told City Island Images that he’s “seriously thinking about running for Mayor of NYC”. He also says he will make a final decision sometime during the fall campaign season.
During an exclusive interview with City Island Images this afternoon, the 51 year old Carrión assured us that there’s plenty of room for another mayoral candidate in the race and highlighted his centrist political outlook. He says most Democrats are all trying to out-left each other and proudly identified himself as a moderate-to-conservative Democrat.
Carrion, who was born in Manhattan told us that Republican leaders searching for a viable mayoral contender have recently approached him. Adolfo Carrión, Jr., was the 12th Chief Executive of the Bronx since borough consolidation. back in 1898.
Mr. Carrión says he is also considering running on the GOP party line. So far, he hasn’t accepted. But he also hasn’t rejected the idea out of hand.
The City Islander has a passion for urban planning issues, with a dozen years worth of experience in politics and policy as a NYC council member and as the Bronx Borough President and most recently as director of the White House Office of Urban Affairs in the Obama administration.
