October 23, 2017 - Max & Murphy: Three Candidates Running for Mayor

3 mayorsJust about two weeks ahead of Election Day, November 7, we were joined on the podcast by three of the seven mayoral candidates who will appear on the ballot. Aaron Commey (left) is the Libertarian Party nominee; Akeem Browder (right) is the Green Party nominee; and Mike Tolkin (center) is on the Smart Cities ballot line that he created to reflect his campaign theme, which is animated by his background as a tech entrepreneur.

The three candidates introduce themselves and discuss the key aspects of their policy platforms, while also assessing incumbent Mayor Bill de Blasio, who they each hope to unseat, and several key issues facing New Yorkers.

Listen to the full conversation and let us know what you think -- we're on Twitter @TweetBenMax and @jarrettmurphy. The candidates are @aaron_commey and @AkeemBrowderNYC and @MikeTolkin. You can hear the episode through the embedded audio below or download it wherever you get your podcasts.
