Cynthia Nixon Responds to Criticism After Announcing Run for Governor of New York

Cynthia Nixon is speaking out in her first in-person interview since revealing that she’s running for Governor of New York.

Here’s what the actress and activist had to say…

On the biggest issue for New Yorkers: “When I’m speaking to people in low-income communities of color, there are a number of issues that keep popping up: protecting undocumented people, the subways, and a whole host of things. But, by far, the number one issue that keeps coming up is the lack of affordable housing and the tyranny of landlords. Our government, particularly in New York state, is so owned by the real estate lobby. Our rent laws have been shredded.”

On her qualifications being questioned she’s a celebrity:Andrew Cuomo is a celebrity politician because he was Mario Cuomo’s son. He is in a political celebrity family, and I am in a theatrical celebrity family. He was also a celebrity when he ran. But I don’t know. To me, celebrity seems like a distraction. It seems to me that the thing that is happening in the city and the state and this country is this vast gap. We have so much wealth here. You know, the thing I said last night that the top one percent of New Yorkers earn 45 times what the other 99 percent earn combined. I mean that is a staggering statistic.”

On why being “unqualified” is actually a strength: “We talk a lot about outsiders, but sometimes a little naïveté is exactly what is needed. With a jaded system everybody says, ‘Yeah, well, that’s the way it is.’ You need somebody to come and say, ‘Why? Why is that the way it is?’ Don’t try to tell me that I don’t have a right to stand here and say, ‘I want to be Governor, because I think you’re doing a lousy job. Nobody is talking about the things that you’re not doing, so I am going to do it.’”
