“It’s time for change,” he said in an announcement video. “That starts with bringing competency, leadership and a mayor who actually cares more about outcomes than special interests and campaign donors to City Hall.”

With just eight months left before the primary election, McGuire is the latest to enter the race to replace current Mayor Bill de Blasio (D), who is unable to run again due to term limits.

He also worked as a volunteer at a makeshift hospital at the Javits Center in Manhattan during the height of the COVID pandemic.

“I don’t have all the answers,” Iscol said. “But I do know where to find them — on any one of our city’s blocks where there is more talent and ingenuity than there are in most towns and cities around the world. New York will get through this because of our greatest resource, New Yorkers.”

Iscol faces stiff competition, including city Comptroller Scott Stringer, Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams and ex-de Blasio aide Maya Wiley.

Opinion: By speaking out, WNBA players are altering Senate race in Georgia .
Rev. Raphael Warnock leads the race in a special US Senate election in Georgia, charging up the polls after WNBA players expressed support in August.The leader of Atlanta’s famed Ebenezer Baptist Church, where Martin Luther King Jr. was once the pastor, Warnock had little name recognition and not much money. Both were crucial in a U.S. Senate race where he was challenging the multimillionaire incumbent, Kelly Loeffler, as well as Doug Collins, a U.S. representative from Georgia since 2013, so it was hardly a surprise that Warnock’s support in early polls was in the single digits.
