NEW YORK — With the City Council set to vote Tuesday to override Mayor Eric Adams’ veto of a controversial police reporting bill, supporters of the legislation took to the streets Monday in a leafletting campaign to convince New Yorkers they’re right and he’s wrong.
It’s the showdown at the O.K. Corral. The mayor is trying to fend off the very real possibility that the City Council will override his veto and succeed.
However, political experts say it may be more about his re-election campaign and less about whether he loses Tuesday.
“There’s been a misinformation campaign by the administration,” Public Advocate Jumaane Williams said.
