The Mayor Hauls in the Money

The candidates' financial statements have been released for the previous two months and Bill de Blasio becomes the biggest earner and spender of campaign funds.  Massey had the biggest haul among Republicans but Malliotakis also raised an impressive amount considering she's only been campaigning for two weeks.  Aside from that, Massey and Malliotakis await the Conservative Party's endorsement which should come this week.  This week's installment of the 2017 New York City Mayoral Candidates Power Rankings sees Nicole Malliotakis holding on to the top spot.

And They Start Dropping Like Flies

Two candidates dropped out of the race this week and it looks like the Republican ticket will be contested by Malliotakis and Massey while de Blasio might just take the Democratic ticket with very little opposition unless his backing of an individual who used government resources for personal use starts to affect his candidacy.  This week's installment of the 2017 New York City Mayoral Candidates Power Rankings sees Nicole Malliotakis holding on to the top spot.

Look Out for the Newcomer

Manhattan GOP Mayoral Candidate Forum 4-2-17 (Full) from John Kenny on Vimeo.

It's official, John Catsimatidis will not be seeking the mayoral seat which means that Nicole Malliotakis is certain to run.  The timing for her could not be any better as the Republicans held their little screening which Nicole attended (above video) where we learned that none of our candidates is a great public speaker and that Bo Dietl turned off the Republicans so much he has no shot at receiving their endorsement.  This week's installment of the 2017 New York City Mayoral Candidates Power Rankings sees Nicole Malliotakis overtaking Sal Albanese as she enters the rankings at the top spot.

A Political Endorsement Favors a Wily Candidate

It was yet another uneventful week in the race as the biggest media event was that Nicole Malliotakis filed some paperwork to potentially run for mayor (that is if her friend John Catsimatidis does not).  Yes, the biggest news this week was that a state assemblywoman did some bureaucratic work.  Today, the Manhattan Republicans are gathering all of their candidates (including Malliotakis but excluding Catsimatidis) to screen them and decide who they want to back.  This week's installment of the 2017 New York City Mayoral Candidates Power Rankings sees Sal Albanese overtake Paul Massey to rise to the top spot.

The Mayor Visits Staten Island

Bill de Blasio paid Staten Island a visit and held a town hall meeting there while his opponents stumble over each other to figure out a way to make a dent in this race.  Anytime they would get press coverage, a feat in and of itself (potential candidates get more coverage), it was negative.  This week's installment of the 2017 New York City Mayoral Candidates Power Rankings sees Paul Massey holding on to the top spot.

The Silent Campaigns

One more candidate jumps into the race dominating the coverage on the campaign for a day or two and then vanishing just like all his competitors.  So this year's mayoral campaign will most likely be a silent one with the Republicans content with Massey and the Democrats settling on de Blasio.  This week's installment of the 2017 New York City Mayoral Candidates Power Rankings sees Paul Massey holding on to the top spot.

Stop the Pressers!

Not much has happened in the past two weeks on the mayoral campaign with the mayor refusing to take questions at a press conference being the most notable event.  By this time, four years ago, Anthony Weiner was pumping the press about his potential disastrous run.  What a difference four years make.  This week's installment of the 2017 New York City Mayoral Candidates Power Rankings sees Paul Massey holding on to the top spot.

The Unfunded Campaign

The candidates' financial summaries for the first quarter of the year have been released and there is only one man that has hit seven digits in both spending and raising of funds and he's not the mayor.  Aside from that, Bo Dietl officially kicked off his campaign and Bill de Blasio will not be charged by prosecutors.  This week's installment of the 2017 New York City Mayoral Candidates Power Rankings sees Paul Massey holding on to the top spot.

Snowstorm Shuts Down Mayoral Campaign

This was a very uneventful week in which the mayor shut down the city, and it seems the mayoral campaign as well, for a little snowstorm.  However Paul Massey managed to officially kick off his campaign to so little fanfare.  This week's installment of the 2017 New York City Mayoral Candidates Power Rankings sees Paul Massey holding on to the top spot.

Massey Starts to Amass an Army
