Black politician became mayor of New York for the second time in history

The new mayor of New York was a Democrat and former policeman Eric Adams, who won more than 66% of the vote in the elections, RIA Novosti reports.

His main opponent, Republican Curtis Pliva, has already admitted defeat. He got about 28% of the vote. The remaining seven candidates did not receive even 3% of the votes.

It is noted that Adams became the second black mayor in the history of New York. He should start his duties on January 1. The governor of the state of the same name, Katie Hockole, congratulated the politician on his victory.

Adams said in his speech that it was time to “steer New York in a new direction” and make it safer.

Recall that a former resident of Tomsk, Vitaly Filipchenko, who has been living in the United States for the past 15 years, also took part in the race for the mayor of New York. However, the Russian could not continue the struggle for the post of mayor, since some of the signatures were invalid.
