NEW YORK — Fernando Mateo has been fighting for livery cab drivers and bodega owners. Now, he wants to fight for all New Yorkers.

Mateo is the latest person to step into the race for New York City mayor, kicking off his run on Dyckman Street in the Inwood section of Manhattan.


Mateo, who acknowledged he is not a politician, said the city does not need someone with political experience, but rather someone with “common sense experience.”

“Someone that knows how to manage, someone that knows how to lead, and I’m a leader, and I can do it,” Mateo told PIX11.

According to Mateo, crime is what is driving people away from the city and said the economy “in in shambles.”

The advocate said the city needs someone who has experienced what New Yorkers experiences and said politicians “live in a bubble.”
