CYNTHIA Nixon – the star of the hit late nineties HBO series ‘Sex and the City’ is to run for New York governor and will challenge current Democratic Governor, Andrew Cuomo.
She is running on a progressive platform and said “We want our [New York] government to work again, on healthcare, ending mass incarceration, fixing our broken subway,” she said.
“We are sick of politicians who care more about headlines and power than they do about us. It can’t just be business as usual anymore.”
A spokesperson said that: “Cynthia is a lifelong New Yorker, actor, who is running for governor to fight for a better, fairer New York”
“Cynthia hasn’t been bought and paid for by corporate interests, and won’t be accepting any corporate contributions in this campaign.”
“She grew up on the Upper West Side of Manhattan and in Yorkville, where she was raised by her single mother in a one bedroom, fifth-floor walk-up apartment.”
“She is a proud graduate of New York public schools and an even prouder public school parent. Her three children, Sam, Charlie and Max, are all New York City public school students or graduates.”
