NEW YORK (WCBS 880) — Former City Council Speaker Christine Quinn is reportedly preparing another run for New York City mayor.

According to the New York Post, Quinn has been talking to people close to her about possibly entering the 2021 mayoral race.

Quinn is currently the CEO of the homeless services organization Women in Need and vice chairman of the State Democratic Party.

In 2013, she finished third in the Democratic primary behind Bill de Blasio and Bill Thompson.

City Comptroller Scott Stringer, Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams, civil rights attorney Maya Wiley, City Council Member Carlos Menchaca and at least a dozen others have launched their mayoral campaigns — all vying to lead the city as it heads into uncharted territory.

"You’ve just never seen anything like this," political strategist Chris Coffey said. "The city’s facing unparalleled fiscal challenges worse than when Koch took office in 1978, worse than when Mike Bloomberg took office in 2002."

The Democratic primary is in June.
