With a promise to institute a cash giveaway program to half-a-million New Yorkers, former presidential candidate Andrew Yang will announce his bid to become the city’s next mayor Thursday morning.
Yang will unveil his candidacy in Morningside Heights, where the Schenectady native first lived when he moved to New York City in 1996.
He will then hopscotch the city, via public transportation, to meet with elected officials in voter-rich neighborhoods. He is planning lunch with Queens Borough President Donovan Richards and do a walking tour with Assemblymember Latrice Walker, who represents Brownsville, Brooklyn.
