Who does Mayor de Blasio want to succeed him? He’s not saying


In America, everyone’s entitled to a secret ballot — including the mayor of New York City.

And while many inquiring minds want to know whom Mayor Bill de Blasio voted for to succeed him in Tuesday’s Democratic primary, the incumbent told reporters that he’s keeping his vote to himself.

Hizzoner cast his ballot midday on June 22 at the Park Slope Public Library, not too far away from his personal residence in Brooklyn. Like any other voter, he filled out his scannable paper ballot, most likely utilizing the ranked-choice voting system to choose whom he’d like to succeed him, then fraternized with some children waiting outside the library, even taking the time to sign autographs.
