Eric Leroy Adams is the current Mayor of New York City who recently assumed office on 1st January, 2022. He is a famous politician of the Democratic Party in America. Adams was elected as the Mayor of New York City in 2021 in a landslide victory against Curtis Silwa.

“Cheese is like heroin”…
Mayor Adams’s publication promoting veganism
Adams has recently launched a campaign which encourages New Yorkers to consume less animal-based products and follow a more plant-based diet. His statement, “Cheese is like heroin” has sparked mixed reactions of amusement and consternation from the public. “The more you eat plants [and] fruits, the more you have a healthy lifestyle away from over-processed food, the healthier you are going to be,” stated Adams in an attempt to encourage New Yorkers to eat healthy. “I know how I feel every day, and I want you to feel the same way every day.”

Tracey Collins is the current partner of Eric Adams and has been in a relationship with Adams for a long time. She is the head of the Department of Education of New York City. She was born in 1962, in New Orleans, Louisiana where she grew up in a large family with four sisters and several nephews and nieces.
Unlike the typical stereotype of New York City’s “outgoing” First Lady, Tracey likes to keep a low profile and apparently was absent from Adams’ Mayoral campaigns as well as the victory parties organised in Manhattan and Brooklyn.
“Up at dawn to run the largest school system in the US”…
Collins is extremely dedicated to her work. “She gets up at dawn to run the largest school system of the United States” , writes Eric Adams in his vegan lifestyle book, Healthy at Last. According to public documents, Collins has held office as head of the Education Department since 2008. The documents also show that she went home with 173,710 dollars last year. Adams also noted, “She typically works 12 hours a day. She never gets a break.”
In support of Adams telling youth to “pull up their pants”
Tracey has long been in support of youth empowerment alongside Eric Adams. She had partnered up with Adams in 2010 to organise a billboard campaign called “Stop the Sag” to tackle the unpalatable trend of wearing low – slung pants among youngsters, throughout Brooklyn. “Children will be children. But as adults we need to be on record and tell them they’re doing something wrong”, says Adams to the Daily News.
Tracey currently resides in a two – bedroom apartment at Fort Lee in New Jersey where Adams spends most of his weekends. It is still uncertain if she will move into Gracie mansion with Adams.
In addition to heading the Education Department, Collins has authored a number of books.She has 14 books on Goodreads with a total of 1007 ratings. Stumbling into Sobriety and Sweet Promptings in 2007, whose introduction was written by Adams, are among her most popular works. She has also formerly worked as a teacher and a principal in schools of New Orleans and New York City.
