Incumbent Mayor

Bill de Blasio
Democratic



Journalists and political commentators predicted several potential candidates, including Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams, Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr., Council Speaker Corey Johnson, Comptroller Scott Stringer, and Public Advocate Jumaane Williams.[3][4] By 2021, however, while many candidates have declared themselves for both major parties, most of them are first-time candidates who have never held political office rather than sitting elected officials. Notable candidates include Adams, Stringer, former counsel to Bill de Blasio Maya Wiley, former Citigroup executive Raymond McGuire, Guardian Angels founder Curtis Sliwa, entrepreneur Andrew Yang, and a large number of other prominent members of the New York City business and political communities.
