DescriptionNew York city elects its mayor and other important city offices on November 5, 2013, in partisan elections. Adolfo Carrion, Jr., former two-term President of the Bronx, and Director of the White House Office of Urban Affairs Policy, and a registered independent, is seeking the Mayor’s office.

On February 16, Carrion was the only candidate for Mayor invited to speak at the annual national conference of IndependentVoting. Leaders of IndependentVoting are also leaders of the New York City Independence Party, and it is clear that leaders of the New York city Independence Party support Carrion for the party’s nomination. Carrion will also seek the nomination of the Republican Party, but it is not yet certain that Republican Party leaders will permit him to enter the Republican mayoral primary. Because he is not a registered Republican, he must get permission from party leaders in order to appear on the Republican primary ballot.
