AAF HOSTS NYC MAYORAL REPUBLICAN CANDIDATES FORUM
STRAW POLL RESULTS ARE IN!
Our discussion panelists, S. Mitra Kalita from Quartz;Kwang S. Kim from the Korean Community Services of Metropolitan New York, Inc. (KCS); Luna Liu from the World Journal, and Vivian Lee from NY1, asked questions that related to the candidates’ leadership vision, focusing on the areas of education, health and social services, small business, and community development.
Many thanks to them, and our moderator Ti-Hua Chang at Fox 5 News, for initiating some lively discussions.
At the end of the evening, audience members were asked to participate in a straw poll, selected the candidate that would get their vote based on the forum. The results are:
- Adolfo Carrión, Jr. – 44%
- John Catsimatidis – 29%
- George McDonald – 27%
With many more months of campaigning left to go, we hope the candidates will have many more opportunities to engage our City’s Asian American community.
The Democratic Mayoral Candidates Forum will be held next Tuesday, April 9, 2013 from 6-8 pm at theTime Warner Center. Please RSVP to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
