In the Democratic primary for mayor, Eric Adams continues to hold the top spot with 32% of the votes followed by Maya Wiley with 22% then Kathryn Garcia with 20%.
Exuding confidence, the Brooklyn borough president and Democratic front-runner in the mayoral race spoke Thursday.
"No one who ran for office for mayor has given more to this city than me, and no one is going to give more to this city than I am," Adams says.
Whichever candidate comes out on top will go up against Republican Curtis Sliwa in the November election.
"We're just going to wait it out. Whatever the results are we're going to respect them. Whoever is the mayor of the city of New York, I'm going to work with them," Adams continued.
He shared some criticism of the way the city is currently being run as well.
"We didn't keep up and that's what made us become this nightmare," he says. "We've lost our mojo. This used to be the city where you would come here and dream big."
He says he'll encourage innovation and focus on public safety. His police commissioner would be a woman who believes in proactive policing.
