Mayoral candidate Maya Wiley warns Lynch: ‘There is a new sheriff in town’


Mayoral candidate Maya Wiley took shots at police unions and the President of the Police Benevolent Association Patrick J. Lynch during a press conference on Tuesday afternoon, stating “there is a new sheriff in town.” 

Wiley held a press conference in Washington Square Park to affirm that New York City has the money, people, and know-how to handle critical issues at hand such as homelessness. However, she claims the city is lacking adequate leadership. Announcing policies on affordable housing, homelessness, and other initiatives to help rebuild New York City, the mayoral hopeful was joined by advocates Maya Rupert, Shams DaBaron, and others who both spoke on behalf of Wiley’s character and why they believe she is the ideal candidate.
