Over a thousand people attended our "Race for Mayor 2013: What's in it for Low-income New Yorkers?" forum, moderated by Brian Lehrer of WNYC. The February 28th event featured candidates Sal Albanese, Tom Allon, Adolfo Carrión Jr., Bill de Blasio, John Liu, Christine Quinn, and Bill Thompson responding to questions on issues that directly impact the city's low-income residents. From how to strengthen the linkage between education and jobs for our young people, to paid sick leave, to raising the minimum wage, and more, the candidates engaged in a sometimes contentious but always informative discussion.
