Carrie No longer Owns New York
Sex and the City star Cynthia Nixon has announced she is launching a bid for New York governor.
The Tony Award-winning star, who played Miranda Hobbs on the HBO series, plans to challenge incumbent Governor Andrew Cuomo for the Democratic party nomination.
A Campaign Based on Education
The actress is a newcomer to campaigning but has been involved in politics, especially education policy, for years.
“We want our government to work again, on healthcare, ending mass incarceration, fixing our broken subway. We are sick of politicians who care more about headlines and power than they do about us,” Nixon said in her announcement.
In her two minute proposal, she reminds the public of her longstanding work with the New York public school system.
“I’m a proud public school graduate,” she said, “and a prouder public school parent. I was given chances I just don’t see most of New York’s kids today. Our leaders are letting us down.
“We are the most unequal state in the entire country, with both incredible wealth and extreme poverty.”
A Progressive Alternative for New York Governor
And in a recent interview with CNN refers to the state of the nation as a whole since Trump’s presidency.”If we’ve learned anything during this first year of the Trump presidency, it’s that the cavalry isn’t coming to save us.
“We ourselves are the cavalry. In 2018, each one of us has to do whatever we can to take the government back. If we want change, we have to go out ourselves and seize it.”
If elected, Cynthia Nixon would become the first female and first openly gay governor of New York state. Her campaign and criticism of the current governor will place her as a progressive alternative for New York but of course, the internet has already created some hilarious Sex and the City memes for the announcement.
Samantha: I don't believe in the Republican party or the Democratic party. I just believe in parties.
