NYCity Mayoral Candidate wishes to compromise bus-lane efectiveness
Posted by daveklepper on Tuesday, June 22, 2021 6:48 AM

by allowing Yellow cabs to pick-up and distcharge.

He also wants to give merchants to authorize two-hour free-parking in front of their stores.

My tack is this reduce store business, not increase.  Most shoppers access Manhattan by public transt.  These measures will reduce bus edfficiency and end up with fewer visitors to the business core.

Thw candidate is Fernando Mateo, and I believe he has his own website, and so does the New York Republican Party.

I go this information on a Yahoo email from the latter, and Yahoo finally allowed retrieving it.   The URL is www.mateoformayor.com

His whole program is detailed.

He lost the primary, and I do not know the successful candidate's views on transit.

The posting might remain as a warning about what any city Mayoral candidate might think up to attract voters.

NYC is so heavily left-wing that the winner of the primary is effectively the next mayor. As they are running ranked voting, it will be several weeks before the official results come out

I think you mean the winner of the Democratic Party Primary.

If nobody objects, it being a transit topic and not politics, I'll try and find his or her viewa on transit, specifically transit and nothing else.

If anyone feels this is out-of-line, I'll desist.

I was in NJ when the NYC primarys were held.  It won't be until sometime in July until the winner of the Democratic primary is formally announced.

For some reason the Democratic primary voting was done on a "First choice, second choice, third choice et al " ballot listing all the candidates so it's going to take several weeks to sort the choices out.

It strikes me as an invitation to chaos, but if that's how they wanted to do it I can't say it bothers me, I don't live there.

Adams won. Anyone know his position or just business as usual?
