Taxi advocate Fernando Mateo launches bid for NYC mayor

Republican Fernando Mateo, an advocate for taxi drivers and bodega owners, is officially launching his bid for mayor on Wednesday.



“I’m excited. I’m on the road to City Hall,” Mateo, 63, a native of the Dominican Republican, said in an interview. “This is a city of immigrants. This is a city built by immigrants. I want to be their voice.”

Mateo will likely face off in the Republican primary against Guardian Angels founder Curtis Sliwa and financier Sara Tirschwell.

Sliwa wasted no time attacking Mateo, citing his ties to Mayor Bill de Blasio’s pay-to-play fundraising scandal.

“Republicans will not be fooled again with a crooked candidate trying to scheme his way on the GOP line for Mayor. It’s bad enough Mateo raised illegal contributions, but it’s even worse that he did it for the worst Mayor in NYC history, Bill de Blasio, and now is asking local Republican Party leaders for their support as a candidate for Mayor. It’s like Groundhog Day in more ways than one,” said Sliwa.
