Last night, there was a public forum at Educational Alliance featuring the candidates on the ballot in the special election to replace former Assemblyman Sheldon Silver in Albany. The election in the 65th Assembly District race will be held April 19. We were joined by Lester Chang (R), Alice Cancel (D), Yuh-Line Niou (Working Families Party) and Dennis Levy (Green Party). Cancel only took part in a portion of the event; she had other commitments.
The event was hosted by Asian Americans for Equality, Educational Alliance and Chinese American Voters Association. Our own Ed Litvak moderated with a panel of reporters from World Journal, China Press, Sing Tao Daily and SinoVision. You can listen to the whole forum here. As the recording begins, you’ll be hearing Educational Alliance President & CEO Alan van Capelle delivering opening remarks.
