This edition: Let's Get This Party Started! Elections, Reforms, and Political Participation in New York StateTweet
Original tape date: May 9, 2018.
First aired: May 15, 2018.
Moderator Bob Liff and a panel of concerned citizens discuss recent battles over primary elections and party politics in New York. Will the Working Families Party and other minor parties survive the Cuomo/Nixon contest and an increasingly divided political climate? Do third parties and "fusion" candidates lift or depress political participation in the State? Will the two major parties continue to compete for the center, or will they open their tents to more diverse constituencies and political ideologies?
