NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – The first in a series of five town meetings was held last night at the Schomburg Center in Manhattan. The meetings give an opportunity to hear from New Yorkers what they want from the candidates for Mayor, City Comptroller and Public Advocate.
1010 WINS’ Sonia Rincon, CBS 2’s Maurice DuBois, WCBS Radio 880’s Steve Scott and El Diario/La Prensa’s Marlene Peralta were on the panel of local news reporters to listen to voters from Manhattan.
Jobs and housing affordability were some of the top themes at the meeting, Rincon reported.
Ian Hoffman asked the panel to grill candidates not just about minimum wage but a living wage.
