      Curtis 2021. Voting for Adams is just giving DeBlasio a third term. Adams talks tough on crime now after a career of smearing the police. If people want a fresh approach towards various issues they are not going to get it with the same old faces.

        Congratulations, Joe, for posting the silliest comment on the internet today.

        • The Whole Truth says:

          Maybe NOT so silly. Like many UWS liberals, I originally thought of Mr. Sliwa as a joke.
          UNTIL I watched the debate between he and Mr. Adams. Mr. Sliwa came across as a thoughtful and serious candidate concerned about ordinary peoples’ concerns (property taxes, NYC bureaucracy, disrespect for police, etc.)
          Will I vote for Sliwa? Not sure, but I do know that he is NOT a joke.

          • SadforUWS says:

            Sliwa would be a great mayor, and the crime would really go down under him, and fast. I can hope.

          • Jen says:

            I feel exactly the same. I was leaning towards Adams but after reading more about him and watching the debate, I realized that we are dealing with DeBlasio 2.0. Not only he is not going to support police properly, his choice of AG, etc. are the ones that created the existing issues to start with.

          • Mark Moore says:

            I can’t vote someone for mayor who lives in a studio with 16 cats. There’s something off about that. You want a person like that running the city?

      • Leon says:

        Nationally I am a very loyal moderate Democrat, as anti-Trump as they get. Given how partisan DC is now, I can’t see myself ever voting for a Republican.

        Locally, I don’t feel well represented by the Democratic Party. I greatly preferred Adams to Wiley and some of the other very woke candidates, but I’m still not a fan.

        If the Republicans put up a decent candidate who was also anti-Trump and had some gravitas I would consider them, but Sliwa is cartoon character. I can’t take him seriously. So Adams it is.

        • John E. says:

          Yes, resting on your laurels as the founder of the Guardian Angels and talking about stray cats is not going to get my vote.

          But a real shame that Garcia did not get the Democratic nomination. Guess voters are more enamored with a flashy politician than a competent manager.

          • Paul says:

            I find Curtis Sliwa to be inspiring.
            He’s inspired me to vote for Eric Adams.

            • Charles says:


              That’s exactly what he has been meant to do.

              The question is why? The answer requires critical thinking….

      • RCP says:

        Hear, hear. Dems for Sliwa. Time to clean up the streets.

    2. Christine says:

      I’ve met SLiwa many times and will vote for him.Eric Adams live in Fort Lee New Jersey.

    3. Abie says:

      Sliwa says what he means and means what he says. A rare trait for a politician!
      I definitely can not say that for Adams.

      This is a difficult decision. Considering the above, my gut tells me to vote for Sliwa

    4. JustSayin says:

      Are this many days of early voting really needed for this election? I guess it’s nice that they are offered, but it sure seems excessive.

    5. Mark Moore says:

      Early voting was great last year because when I went to vote on Election Day there was nobody there.
