The Black Star News, a weekly newspaper in New York city in existence since 1997, has this op-ed by Lenora Fulani, advocating a vote for Adolfo Carrion for Mayor on November 5. Carrion is the nominee of the Independence Party.
The New York Times of September 23 has an editorial about the Mayoral race. The editorial only mentions three candidates, including Carrion, even though there are approximately ten candidates on the November ballot.
The Independence Party has existed in New York since 1994 and this year is the first time it has run its own nominee for Mayor of New York city. In 1997, the Independence Party didn’t run anyone for Mayor. In 2001, 2005, and 2009, it nominated Michael Bloomberg, who was also the Republican Party nominee those years.
