This was a nonstarter for Suozzi a Nassau County LI NY politician…..
Suozzi could run for New York Governor……
Being a NYC Deputy Mayor would be a political dead end job…..
A Long Island congressman said Saturday he’s declining an offer to join Mayor-elect Eric Adams’ administration as a deputy mayor — while also fueling speculation that he plans to make a run for governor.
“I will do everything I can to help my friend Mayor-elect @ericadamsfornyc & the people of NYC succeed,” Rep. Tom Suozzi tweeted.
“After discussing it with my family, I believe the best way for me to help him and NYC is in elected office. I will announce my plans for the future in the coming days. [Thank you] Eric!”…
Suozzi, a former Nassau County executive and ex-mayor of Glen Cove, has said he plans to announce whether he’ll run in the 2022 Democratic gubernatorial primary by the end of the month.
If he runs for governor and wins, he can still complete the remainder of his current term in Congress that expires at the end of next year.
