“I stand before this city today as someone seeking to be a mayor of our neighborhoods — good, clean, strong, safe neighborhoods,” said the Democratic candidate, flanked by his wife and son.

Throughout his career, de Blasio has fought to expand early childhood education, tenants’ rights and job opportunities, according to his campaign website.

“We can only get to a better place by declaring, ‘this is our city and this government works for us,’” he said.
