Although he lacks the name recognition of most other candidates, a lucky draw in the Board of Elections ballot lottery means Aaron Foldenauer will be the first name voters see on June 22. Foldenauer previously ran for the Lower Manhattan City Council seat twice in 2017, once as a Democrat in the primary and then as the Liberal Party candidate in the general election. He lost both times to Margaret Chin, who won a third Council term.

Now Foldenauer, a career litigator, has his sights set on becoming the mayor, with a focus on sustainability and climate action. His infrastructure plan includes finishing the Second Avenue Subway, creating a “bicycle superhighway” on Third Avenue and establishing electric vehicle lanes throughout the city.
