On June 6, AABANY joined several other bar associations to co-sponsor “An Evening with the New York City Mayoral Candidates” at the New York City Bar.
The event started shortly after 6 pm with the first hour devoted to Republican and Independent candidates: Adolfo Carrion Jr. was the Independent and the Republican candidates in attendance were Joseph Lhota, John Catsimatidis and George McDonald.
The next hour was dedicated to the Democratic candidates: Sal Albanese, Bill deBlasio, John Liu and Bill Thompson.
Errol Louis of NY1 moderated.
It was an informative and engaging forum, and we thank New York City Bar for hosting it and MBBA and Network of Bar Leaders for bringing the bar groups together. AABANY live tweeted from the event and its tweets got several re-tweets from the candidates.
