The Marquee Candidates

Four notables who’ve publicly flirted with running for New York mayor.


Kelsey Grammer hopes “to do something good for people.”
Platform: Small government. “The private sector and society can take better care of itself than the government can.”

Jack Dorsey said running City Hall would be his dream job.
Platform: E-gov. “I would look to integrate more technologies into the city.”

Tony Danza said, “You see things, and you think maybe you could help.”
Platform: Transportation. “We need less cars.”

Alec Baldwin is prepared to potentially “have my ass kicked” if he runs.
Platform: Alec Baldwin. “There are people who make a lot of money who become rich people, and then there are people who make a lot of money, but they don’t think like rich people do … I would definitely put myself in the latter class.”
