Brooklyn Be Heard! Submit Your Questions for the AG Debate

I meant to post this on Monday, but better late than never. For more information on the event, click on the flyer above.

Brooklyn, NY – The DuBois Bunche Center for Public Policy at Medgar Evers College, which is hosting a debate between the Democratic candidates for New York State Attorney General on Thursday, July 15 at 6:30 PM, is still accepting question submissions from residents of Central Brooklyn.

The debate will include three questions selected from submitted questions by central Brooklyn residents. Submissions can be emailed to
CentralBKDebate [at] gmail [dot] com and must include the resident’s first name and last initial or name, as well as the central Brooklyn neighborhood of residence (i.e. Bed-Stuy, Crown Heights, Prospect Heights, etc.).

All five of the Democratic Party candidates are confirmed to participate in the event. The list of candidates includes Assemblyman Richard Brodsky; Sean Coffey, lead attorney in the WorldCom securities case; former New York State Insurance Superintendent Eric Dinallo; Nassau County District Attorney Kathleen Rice; and State Senator Eric Schneiderman.

The candidates are expected to address a number of questions considered to be of particular concern to central Brooklyn residents and those living in the state’s urban centers. Topics will range from the discriminatory implementation of police policies and tactics, to protecting New Yorkers from lending and real estate fraud.

The moderator of the debate will be Jonathan P. Hicks, a senior fellow at the DuBois Bunche Center for Public Policy and a former political writer with The New York Times. The debate will be held in Founders Auditorium at Medgar Evers College at 1650 Bedford Avenue in the Crown Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn.

The debate is co-sponsored by several political clubs from central Brooklyn: Vanguard Independent Democratic Association (VIDA); Progressive Association for Political Action (PAPA); Rosa Parks Democratic Club; Thomas S. Boyland Democratic Club; New Era Democratic Club; Progressive Democratic Political Association; and the Unity Democratic Club. For more information, please contact Mandela Jones at (914) 610-0942 or
