Candidate Pans For Comedy Gold(enberg)

Published on

What does a mayor even do?

That question was posed during a two-hour comedy-fueled fundraiser for mayoral candidate Tom Goldenberg — with no punchline, or answer, delivered.

Goldenberg is the meditator-turned-bartender-turned-McKinsey consultant looking to unseat two-term incumbent Mayor Justin Elicker in this year’s Democratic primary. Fellow Democratic challengers Shafiq Abdussabur and Liam Brennan are also running for the city’s top office, as are independents Wendy Hamilton and Mayce Torres.

On Thursday night, Goldenberg — who has spent recent campaign outings catching the bus to survey riders about their thoughts on returning fares and interviewing individuals outside a Congress Avenue methadone clinic — found a new way to make his mark.
