BRONX TIMES REPORTER, O 12 CT. 22-28, 2021 BTR
BY BRONX TIMES
When Brooklyn Borough President
Eric Adams offi cially announced his
candidacy for mayor on Nov. 19, 2020,
New York City was reeling from the
double calamity of the COVID-19 Pandemic
and a growing number of related
fi scal crises.
Now nearly a year later, the Democrat
is poised to become New York
City’s 110th mayor — the overwhelming
favorite to win election in this heavily
Democratic city. Although his main
challenger, Republican Curtis Sliwa, is
to be commended for his work with the
Guardian Angels, he lacks the experience
necessary for this role at this most
critical moment in our history.
Schneps Media wholeheartedly endorses
Adams as the right person at the
right time to lead the city to a robust recovery.
Our endorsement follows Adams’
Democratic Primary win in June on a
moderate pro-public safety, pro-business
platform over several far left progressives.
Adams’ experience in the NYPD
uniquely positions him to strengthen
relations with the police force and help
this city get back on track to truly becoming
the safest big city in America.
Adams comes from a life in service
to the public. Born in Brooklyn and
raised in Queens in a working class
household, where his mother earned a
living as a domestic worker, Adams received
degrees from the New York City
College of Technology, John Jay College
of Criminal Justice, and Marist
Adams was a member of the New
York City Police Department for 22
years, retiring at the rank of Captain.
After four terms in the New York State
Senate representing Central Brooklyn,
Adams was elected as the 18th Borough
President of Brooklyn, and is the fi rst
African American man to hold that position.
As borough president, he has exercised
wisdom on a number of zoning
issues balancing the needs of the borough
with the desires of the local community.
Just as importantly, Adams proved
a capable crisis manager when he put
a mattress on the fl oor at Borough
Hall and worked night and day during
the height of the pandemic to ensure
emergency medical responders had
the equipment necessary to do their
jobs; the city’s Medical Examiner’s Offi
ce kept later hours; and refrigerated
trucks were put in Sunset Park to ease
up the logjam of dead at hospitals and
in funeral homes.
Adams’ rise to the brink of the mayorship
of America’s biggest city is an
inspiration, and not an accident. He
has worked his way to this moment,
and has the experience and tools necessary
to govern this challenging city at
this most challenging time.
He is the right person at the right
time to lead New York City into a new
era of prosperity, while balancing the
budget and the needs of working class
We strongly urge voters to choose
Eric Adams as their next mayor on Nov.
2, with early voting slated for Oct. 23-31.
