ALBANY — New York City Public Advocate Jumaane Williams has officially declared a run for governor in 2022, joining Gov. Kathy Hochul and Attorney General Tish James in a Democratic primary next summer.

Williams, in a two minute and 14 second video ad released late Monday evening, drew on his diagnosis with Tourette syndrome, saying that it has never defined him. He also spotlighted his years working as an activist and organizer.

The emotional ad showed clips of protests against immigrant deportations, police violence and rental laws and highlighted Williams’ own arrests for civil disobedience.

“There is a movement building in New York, a courageous progressive movement that challenges the powerful and helps restore that power to the people, a movement that I’m proud to be a part of,” Williams says in the video. “Because without courageous progressive leadership, the way things have always been will stand in the way of what they can be."
