mark-green-4Former New York City Public Advocate Mark Green would win handily if this year’s Democratic primary for Public Advocate were held today but falls just short of the 40% needed to avoid a runoff. 39% of Democrats say they would support him while 16% report they would back Civil Rights Attorney Norman Siegel.  City Council Members Bill de Blasio and Eric Gioia receive 9% and 8%, respectively.  28% of Democrats are unsure.  Each potential candidate received similar proportions of the vote back in May.

    Mark Green is the best candidate to be New York City’s next Public Advocate. I recall vividly how Mark Green sued Mayor Giuliani in the 90′s putting overdue attention on police brutality and racial profiling issues in the city. This man is a born leader and advocate. He is proven, experienced and should win this election handily. Mayor Bloomberg has almost assumed dictatorial powers in NYC–this makes Mark Green’s election to the Public Advocate’s Office all the more necessary.
