Barbara Kavovit, a former “RHONY” star, enters the NYC mayoral race
Barbara Kavovit, a former member of the cast of “Real Housewives of New York City,” is running for mayor a second time, Page Six exclusively reports.
Kavovit, 56, announced to us Wednesday night at a Seeking event at the Baccarat Hotel, “Damn straight I’m running for mayor again.”
The “city is in trouble,” according to Kavovit, who entered the mayoral race in January 2021 before the November election, and the current mayor, Eric Adams, is “clueless,” according to a statement he gave to Page Six.
She continued, “Our streets are the homes of our homeless. We have safety issues on our streets and within our transportation system.
“There is an assault on our business community. The real estate and construction sectors of our local economy must be safeguarded.
“People are leaving because they don’t want to be here, and we are losing police officers at a record rate. Now more than ever, we require more funding for police officers in our budget.
Kavovit emphasized the importance of putting police officers and safety first.
Kavovit, who has never held elected office before, is the CEO of Evergreen Construction, a business she started in New York City when she was 21 years old.
The city needs sоmeоne like me whо will use their business skills tо make changes tо these prоblems, nоt anоther pоlitician, she cоntinued.
