[Answer] 8. This former mayor was a congressman for six years before winning the mayoral election of 1965. He presided over some of the most turbulent times in city history between 1966 and 1973. Who was he?

Step 1 : Introduction to the question "8. This former mayor was a congressman for six years before winning the mayoral election of 1965. He presided over some of the most turbulent times in city history between 1966 and 1973. Who was he?"



...1. John O'Brien 2. John Hoffman 3. Edward Cooper 4. John Lindsay Lindsay was born in New York City in 1921, and was elected to Congress for the first time in 1958. He won election to the mayoral post in 1965 in a three man race. He walked into a buzzsaw so to speak, with the economic and fiscal problems left over by outgoing mayor Robert Wagner Jr. Jobs in the city were disappearing, many middle class families were abandoning the city for the suburbs, and the city unionized employees were playing hardball in contract negotiations. On his first day as mayor, the entire transit system was shutdown by a strike, which lasted twelve days, nearly crippling the city. The strike was ultimately settled, but at a cost to the taxpayers of course. In 1968, the public school teachers went on strike, followed later the same year by a sanitation workers strike. In February 1969, the city was hit with a 15 inch snowstorm, and the mayor was blamed and accused of favoring Manhattan at the expense of the outer boroughs in the priority of snow clearance. In May of 1970, the city was on the edge as there was a riot between construction workers and students protesting the Kent State College shootings. The police were accused by the mayor of standing by and doing nothing to protect the students. This created tension between the mayor and the police. Somehow, with all this going on, he won re-election to the post in the fall of 1969. He declined to seek a third term when his mayoralty expired in 1973. The best that can be said about Lindsay according to historians is that he guided the city through the rough racial times of the late 1960s with a minimum of damage.
