Councilwoman Letitia James projected to be next NYC public advocate

Capture

City councilmember Letitia James predicts crisis if the two sides don’t end up seeing eye to eye on how to keep Interfaith in operation in a financially sound way.

Councilwoman Letitia James projected to be the next NYC public advocate, beating out State Senator Daniel Squadron in the runoff election.

The projected vote as of 10:20 p.m. was 60% for James, with 97% of precincts reporting.

Since there was no Republican candidate for NYC public advocate, Tuesday’s runoff vote decided the winner.

Both candidates – Sen. Daniel Squadron and City Council member Letitia James — vowed to try to get instant runoff voting legislation passed, after the staggering cost of the election drew criticism.

The runoff election cost taxpayers a whopping $13 million — eventhough the budget for the public advocate office is just $2.3 million a year.
