Barbara Kavovit Is “Strongly Considering” Running For Mayor Of New York City!

According to Page Six, Barbara Kavovit, who appeared as a ‘friend’ on season eleven of The Real Housewives of New York City,  is “strongly considering” running for mayor of New York City.

Kavovit revealed that she already has a campaign manager helping her behind-the-scenes as she is ready to replace Mayor Bill de Blasio come next year.

“Well, I have to say, if Donald Trump could be President of the United States, I can be Mayor of New York City,” she told Page Six. “You know, I’m a builder. I know how to build. I know how to rebuild.”

Kavovit has not had any political aspirations prior to her decision to pursue the campaign as a “tough Democrat,” but after she began to feel “unsafe on the street,” she decided she wanted to make a difference.

“Number one is rebuild a safer and more inclusive New York City,” she said of the platform she wants to run on. “So I feel like the city is not a safe place. So if it’s not safe, people don’t want to come to New York City. People don’t want to stay in New York City.”

She continued, “I think housing is not being addressed, for instance, for housing, one of the first things I would do is build more affordable housing. And with that, I wouldn’t only build more affordable housing, but I would create an ownership program so that whoever is in the housing, they have a responsibility to where they live.”

Kavovit’s stance on crime is tougher. “If you are stealing granny’s pocketbook, you’re going to jail. If there’s not enough jails, I’m going to build another jail.”

“I’m a Democrat, but I’m a tough Democrat,” she explained. “I’m not going to stand for crime. I am going to help businesses. I am going to promote a safer New York City, very structured, so people feel comfortable about being here, so they want to have their business here. So they want to go on the subway and go to work.”

“It’s the toughest city in the world, but the person that’s running it is not tough,” she concluded. “We need a tough advocate, a tough mayor, a tough infrastructure, tough people that are surrounding the mayor. And he doesn’t have that. And we need that.”
