Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Thehill.com: “Williams launches New York gubernatorial bid”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

New York City Public Advocate Jumaane Williams formally launched his gubernatorial campaign Tuesday, joining a growing Democratic primary in a closely watched statewide election.

Williams touted his progressive bona fides in a campaign launch video, noting the number of times he’s been arrested protesting against aggressive police tactics, deportations and more, and said he would represent a new wave of leadership in New York.

“Right now, our state needs to move forward from a pandemic, from an era of scandal and from old ways of governing that have failed so many for so long. For over a decade in office, I’ve shaken things up while passing nearly 70 laws on behalf of the people and more than any public advocate in history,” he said. 

“There is a movement building in New York, a courageous, progressive movement that challenges the powerful and helps restore that power to the people, a movement I’m proud to be a part of. Because without courageous, progressive leadership, the way things have always been will stand in the way of what they can be.”
