NY: Third Party Mayoral Candidate Calls on Incumbent to Resign

From the Times Union:
Mayoral candidate Roger Hull is calling for City Council President Gary McCarthy to resign as acting mayor because Hull said it's wrong for one person to hold the highest position in both the executive and legislative branches of government.

Hull, who held a press conference on the steps of City Hall Monday, issued his challenge one day before McCarthy is to formally announce he'll run as a Democrat in November to be the city's officially elected leader. Hull, who has formed a third party called the Alliance Party, has the endorsement of city Republicans . . .
