Hello. I’m Sean Hayes a candidate for City Council in District 1.


I’m a 47 year-old NY Attorney and Father.

I’m the Head of an International Law Firm.

Previously, I led a law firm in China, Korea & Southeast Asia and taught law, was a CEO of a multinational national company and was a Dean of a UN University.


I am bringing my experience, passion and love for New York forward to serve this City, since I fear that our City shall turn to the Dark Days of the 80s and early 90s, because of reactionary and radicalized politics in New York and the lack of experience, pragmatism, and problem-solving skills of our politicians.


We have too many politicians that are talkers and not doers. Too many politicians that care about their spotlight, but not our road lights and too many politicians that care about their political future, but not our present.


I am stepping into this race because I looked around and saw that the majority of candidates running for NY City Council and for Mayor lacked the experience, centrists viewpoints & pragmatism and were too radicalized and inexperienced to manage the day-to-day needs of residents of New York City.

I thought it was time that I stepped forward to serve the needs of our community. I stepped into this race not for my personal gain. I shall lose a great deal of assets if elected.


I feel I am at a stage in my life where I am blessed with the ability, experience and resources to serve this New York community and feel that if I don't step forward and fight to turn our politics back to the middle ----this great City is doomed to return to those Dark Dark Days.

I am simply fed up. Support us in this fight to save our City. I promise passion, dedication, utilization of all my experience and problem solving skills to help us make this city a better place for us all. Thank you and God bless.
