The Five Borough Ballot Project: What New Yorkers Want in a New Mayor

March 20, 2013 9:52 AMvideo

On this week’s episode, host Rafael Pi Roman interviews Jarrett Murphy, editor of City Limits, and Morgan Pehme, editor of City and State.

Nine months out from the 2013 New York mayoral election—the first without an incumbent mayor since 2001—the field of candidates has largely taken shape. And it’s looking like a stiff horse race.

But for all of the insights bandied about endlessly in the 24-hour news cycle—the fund-raising totals, the endorsements, the numbers—what do residents of the five boroughs actually think about the elections that will determine who governs them for the next four years?

To glean perspective on the opinions of New Yorkers about the upcoming election, City & State and City Limits, in partnership with MetroFocus, present a new series: “The Five Borough Ballot.”

From now until November we will be following the election from the point of view of regulars at five locations: a deli in Manhattan, a NYCHA building in Brooklyn, a bar in Staten Island, a restaurant in the Bronx and a block of homes in Queens.

Intrigued?  Continue reading about the Five Borough Ballot project on City & State and City Limits.
