List of Leading 2021 NYC Mayoral, City Council, Boro President Candidates Based on Voter Support and Matching Funds

Posted By NYC Newswire

Now that the Presidential race is over the focus moves to local New York City politics, with the Mayoral, Borough Presidents, Comptroller, City Council and Public Advocate seats all up for grabs.

The Campaign Finance Board is providing $8 to $1 matching funds for those candidates who surpass the threshold of local voter financial support.  Those who surpass the threshold to receive matching funds are the leading candidates for the 2021 elections and rightfully so because they were able to garner support from local voters. Voters who contribute to a campaign are likely to vote for that candidate. These candidates have shown that not only are they capable of generating support from voters, they are running viable campaigns that can win.

The 8 to 1 matching funds from the Campaign Finance Board gives the leading candidates an obvious financial advantage, allowing them to increase their marketing and reach. 2021 will be an unusual year as we are still in pandemic mode, so campaigns will have to figure out the best ways to reach voters. Traditional political marketing is heavy on the side of print and mailings, but with so many voters relying heavily on digital and social media as a way to consume news, candidates will have to be smart when it comes to spending those extra dollars received from the Campaign Finance Board. Digital and social media shows a level of innovation and understanding of the new landscape of how voters engage.

Incumbents with a lot of cash and a lot of years in political office have been getting bumped off by new candidates lately, and we believe this trend to be attributed to digital and social media marketing. Voters are also proving that they are interested in new elected officials to move their issues forward. 2021 should be very interesting with so many important races across the city.
