West Bronx Mayoral Forum a Success
May 6, 2013
Following our successful citywide Mayoral Forum on Sustainability, the New York League of Conservation Voters Education Fund this week partnered with The Riverdale Press and the Riverdale YM-YWHA to host the West Bronx Green Mayoral Candidate Political Education Forum in Riverdale.
Over 100 people attended Monday night’s forum, which was moderated by NYLCVEF President Marcia Bystryn and included panelists Eric Goldstein, Yael Levy and Barry Willner.
Mayoral candidates Christine Quinn, Sal Albanese, John Liu and Adolfo Carrion fielded questions about a wide range of environmental issues, including open space, energy, waterfront access and the Hudson River Greenway.
On May 21st, NYLCVEF will participate in a West Bronx City Council Candidate Forum, where we’ll cover sustainability issues affecting the West Bronx with City Council candidates.
