Scott Stringer

Democrat Age: 60

Stringer has been in public office since 1993, when he was elected to represent much of Manhattan’s West Side in the state Assembly. In 2005, the John Jay College of Criminal Justice graduate was elected to the first of two terms as Manhattan borough president, and has been the city’s comptroller — essentially its chief investment officer — since 2014. Stringer’s mayoral campaign has emphasized transit improvements and affordable housing development.
