Candidates Talk About NYC's Budgeting for the Safety Net PDF Print E-mail
Friday, 16 August 2013 00:01

What do the candidates for Mayor have to say about New York City's budgetary support for the safety net... as well as some other tangential discussions?

 

 

On June 28th, the Human Services Council (HSC) hosted a Mayoral Candidate Forum focusing on issues relating to nonprofits and human services.  Six Democrats participated -- Bill de Blasio, William Thompson, Anthony Weiner, John Liu, Sal Albanese and Eric Salgado.   Christine Quinn did not attend.  On the Republican side Adolfo Carrion and John Catsimatidis attended.   Joseph Lhota and George McDonald did not.

This week, NYNP-TV will be presenting the candidates' responses to a series of questions posed by moderator Sherry A. Glied, who was recently named Dean of NYU's Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service.

Today, we will be presenting the candidate's responses to Question Number 4:

NYC Budget Support for the Safety Net

Many of the programs that help people avoid poverty - affordable child care, after school, and rental supports, for instance - in addition to programs that help people pull themselves out of poverty - such as literacy and job training programs - have been severely cut over the last decade. Less than a month after you take office, you will present your first Preliminary Budget. As Mayor of New York, how will you commit to stabilizing the safety net for communities?


Here is what the candidates had to say.

Just click on their name or photo to see their response:

We'll have the candidates' responses to additional questions tomorrow and throughout the week.

Our thanks to HSC for hosting the forum and sharing the results with NYNP and its readers.
