Real Housewives of New York City (RHONY) star and Wainscott resident Barbara Kavovit has announced her NYC mayoral run.
Kavovit took to Instagram to share the news, writing, “I’m running for Mayor of New York City because the city that I love, the city of opportunity where I built my business and my dreams, is in a state of crisis. I may not be a politician, but I’m a Bronx-born New Yorker who isn’t fearful of the hard work and tough decisions that lay ahead. It will take a builder to rebuild #NYC, and I’m the woman to do it.”
