Representative of New York's 14th district, which stretched across Manhattan between 3rd and 14th Streets, encompassing Greenwich Village. Jimmy Walker, a Democrat supported by Tammany Hall and current mayor of New York City, would run for re-election against the nonconformist Republican Fiorello L. He graduated from New York University Law School in 1910, was admitted to the bar that same year and began practicing law in New York City. When she refused, Tammany went to the New York Supreme Court and successfully filed a lawsuit to keep Kelly's name off the ballot.
Although he was defeated in the congressional elections in 1914, he had an impressive performance and was appointed Deputy Attorney General of the State of New York the following year. Fiorello Henry La Guardia (1882-194), American municipal leader and mayor of New York City, was one of the most important and dynamic political reformers of the 1930s. This fateful year would make him New York's Deputy Attorney General, propelling him into the world of politics. In 1929, New York City was mired in corruption and vice under the clutches of the corrupt political faction that was in Tammany Hall.
In the middle of the town of Greenwich, in New York City, a statue of a short man represents one of the most famous and effective mayors the city had ever led. He returned to New York in May 1947, where he was reunited with his brother just four months before his death. The fact that LaGuardia informed the public about the true nature of Tammany Hall was an effective strategy, as many New Yorkers had their eyes open to the corruption that plagues the city. Along with New York City Council President Newbold Morris, La Guardia converted the building into the New York City Center for Music and Dance.
In 1919, the president of the New York City Board of Aldermen, Al Smith, resigned to become governor of New York, prompting a special election scheduled for the fall. In 1921, La Guardia ran for the first time for mayor of New York City, but was defeated in the Republican primary by Manhattan Borough President Henry H. LaGuardia's practical approach won the hearts of New Yorkers and the beloved mayor was forever consolidated as one of New York's best leaders. LaGuardia was elected mayor of New York City thanks to an anti-corruption electoral merger (a candidate can run with more than one party line) during the Great Depression, which united him in a difficult alliance with the Jewish population and the liberal blue-blooded groups (WASP) of New York.
