To be honest, I haven't followed the mayoral race very closely (indeed, I was booed at my album release show when I said that I didn't vote in the primaries and didn't much care). But I've been told that as a proponent of the Occupy movement, I would appreciate public advocate and Democratic nominee Bill de Blasio.
Based on what I've seen in videos and writing, I must say that I do appreciate the change that he promises and that his supporters hope he will bring; but as I've done with Obama, I will remain skeptical until I see results (still waiting on the promised change, Obama!). I do wish him the best and have high hopes for his management of this great city that I call home.
But as I had assumed that he would win, given his large lead on the Republican nominee, I just couldn't stomach voting for a Democrat or Republican myself. So I again voted for 3rd parties, all down the line - a symbolic act that I've taken for the past few presidential elections as well. I refuse to let my vote count toward either of these corrupt parties; I'd rather throw my vote behind the prospect of a multi-party system.
Coincidentally, yesterday was also Guy Fawkes' Day, as made famous in the US by the spectacular Wachowski brothers' film V For Vendetta.
