Last night, there was a public forum at the East River Cooperative, the first opportunity for voters to see and hear from the candidates on the ballot in an April 19 special election to replace former Assemblyman Sheldon Silver. It was hosted by Cooperatively Yours, a resident organization. Our own Ed Litvak was the moderator. Alice Cancel, Democratic nominee, and Yuh-Line Niou, who is running on the Working Families Party line, both participated. Republican candidate Lester Chang was invited but did not attend. Here’s a full audio recording of the event. As the tape begins, you’ll be hearing introductory remarks from Jeremy Sherber of Cooperatively Yours. We’ll have a synopsis of the event at a later time.
