Yang said he will be pivoting to all virtual events in the coming days but is looking forward to “once again hitting the campaign train and advancing a positive vision of our city’s future.”
If elected, Yang, who ran for president in 2020, will be tasked with spurring economic development from the fallout of the coronavirus pandemic, which led to job losses and forced hundreds of businesses to shutter. Thousands of New Yorkers left the city due to the ability to work from home or to escape cramped living quarters and rising violent crime rates.
