This Republican Real-Estate Designer Wants to Run for NYC Mayor As a Follower to Bloomberg
A deep-pocketed real-estate executive is preparing to install a difficulty to Bill de Blasio in next year s mayoral election.
Paul Massey, a Republican who recently offered the real-estate brokerage firm he established for $100 million, has been meeting company and GOP leaders throughout the city in an effort to determine support for a campaign.
Paul has actually been extremely successful in property. I encouraged him to purchase in the race, said Joe Lhota, the 2013 Republican prospect for mayor. Lhota said he met Massey earlier this year to stroll him through the mechanics of a citywide run and validates that the business owner has been making the rounds at numerous GOP functions over the in 2014.
Massey, 56, co-founded Massey Knakal Real Estate Services in 1988. It grew into a $2 billion a year company and was purchased in 2014 by Cushman Wakefield.
Previously this year, Massey announced the launch of a political-action committee called 1NY Together devoted to countering de Blasio s program. "This isn t a tale of 2 cities, Massey told Crain s at the time of the pac s launch, utilizing among de Blasio s signature expressions from the 2013 campaign. It s one city and it can be great for everybody.
A source familiar with Massey s believing said that he wanted to spend heavily to money a race, but was likewise preparing to look for contributions from real-estate and financial-industry types who have been trying to find a follower to Michael Bloomberg to carry a pro-business mantle to City Hall.
A project would be focused around bring back trust in between City Hall and the cops, more support for charter schools, and leveraging Massey s connections in the real-estate world and experience with advancement to stimulate the production of more economical housing, stated someone who has consulted with Massey about outlining a possible quote.
The guy is not an ideologue. He is a real-estate individual who looks at problems from a management point of view, said David Catalfamo, a longtime Republican specialist. Those are the kinds of folks who have succeeded mayors of New York and have had success getting chosen.".
Catalfamo conceded that de Blasio would be challenging to beat. If there is a constant sensation that the city is moving backward on criminal activity and quality of life and the jury is still out on that I believe it would reflect on the mayor and his management of the city, he stated. Over the last 25 years individuals have actually concerned anticipate constant enhancement on those 2 fronts.".
In the couple of weeks since its founding, 1NY Together has actually launched a series of surveys that claim to reveal that New Yorkers are progressively concerned about rising criminal offense and decreasing quality of life, along with a series of statements berating the mayor for letting up on the busted windows theory of crime prevention and for violence in the city s homeless shelters.
Any Republican would face long shots in a city where Democrats outnumber Republicans 6 to one, and in which a growing number of New Yorkers approve of the task their mayor is doing. A NY1/Baruch College survey from last month found that 58 percent of city residents authorize of the task that the mayor is doing, up 14 points from last fall.
There will have to be an extremely strong de Blasio reaction for Massey to win, stated Bob Turner, the head of the Queens County Republican Party. Some polls have an extremely reasonable level of frustration, and naturally, de Blasio can worsen that, which he appears intent on doing.
Turner has consulted with Massey two times, and stated he is a wise, articulate, good-looking individual who has been doing his research. He has a little bit of the John Lindsay quality to him.
However Democrats discounted the concept that a millionaire real-estate executive who divides his time between New York City and Westchester could gain much traction in a city that has grown more diverse and more liberal since the Bloomberg period.
It s simple you run against the landlords, stated George Arzt, a long time Democratic expert. The real-estate industry is generally not where you get an individual to run for office. There are just too many negatives.
Ofer Yardeni, the CEO of Stonehenge Partners, a Manhattan-based real-estate company, counts Massey as a personal pal, and said he is helpful of a potential run, however stated numerous in the real-estate neighborhood have been happily amazed about Mayor de Blasio s period. When he began as a mayor, a great deal of individuals were really, extremely worried, specifically when you hear the message that there are 2 cities here, he said. After he took office, he realized we needed to work together.
Before de Blasio emerged out of a crowded Democratic field to beat Lhota by almost 50 points in 2013, Republicans had a two-decade lock on City Hall, and GOP leaders state that the city s company neighborhood has actually been casting about, searching for a candidate.
So far, no trustworthy challenger has emerged to make complex the mayor s reelection quote. Individuals near to de Blasio doubt that some of the popular Democrats who have been critical of the mayor, like City Comptroller Scott Stringer and Brooklyn congressman Hakeem Jeffries, will run the risk of a dissentious primary obstacle, and only Michael Faulkner, a Harlem pastor, and Eric Ulrich, a 30-year-old city councilman from Queens, have expressed an interest on the Republican side. Efforts to hire a holdover from the Bloomberg era, like former police commissioner Ray Kelly or previous deputy mayor Dan Doctoroff have so far not pertain to fulfillment.
A representative for de Blasio decreased to comment. A spokesperson for Massey said he was unavailable to comment.
