On November 2, 2021 NYC will hold its local general elections, where not only the mayor, but many other key city officials, will be decided. Much of the political jockeying, however, will happen ahead of the primary elections that take place in June. With so many candidates on the ticket, and the future of a city emerging from crisis in the balance, making an informed choice at the ballot is as important as ever.
Join us for a revealing and broad-ranging discussion with local political reporters who have been on the ground, covering the candidates and issues in depth. They will share their knowledge and perspectives on how to approach the elections and participate in a discussion with audience members about the big issues at stake for the city and where the candidates stand on them.
