Wild rumor and speculation: A Green Mayor for NYC?

Green response to the in-house vote of elected officials in New York City to extend their own terms:

As a small party, the Green Party is very busy with the current Presidential campaign. For the next few days, we owe all or most of our attention to the former Congresswoman we recruited (begged, cajoled) to our party to carry our banner: Cynthia McKinney for President.

Though, greens can’t help notice the other political events happening around them. So, there has been strong reaction from greens on discussion lists in New York about the undemocratic way that Mayor Bloomberg and the New York City Council just overrode public input and referendum and voted to give themselves the power and benefit of an extra term. Furthermore, the circles of dialogue that greens participate in – including WBAI 99.5FM radio on New York City – are also buzzing with disgust for Mayor Bloomberg and his undemocratic, Democratic, City Council allies.

So, look forward to the Green Party probably putting up a Mayor candidate (again) at the next election, November 2009. And, possibly, one or more strategic races for City Council, to express accountability to the council members who defied the public will. There will be a lot of people with anger at the way the Mayor and various councilpeople handled the term extension vote. And, it will be sad if progressives in the city are given no choice or a Republican-only choice as way to express their opinion. The greens now have a “market niche” to fill here in the electoral arena.

Note, I am not a resident of New York City, nor a member of the Green Party in New York City. So, as stated in the title, this is rather unofficial speculation, and a report on the current zeitgeist only.
