August 28, 2017 - Democratic Public Advocate Candidate David Eisenbach

public adv candidate david eisenbach277pxDavid Eisenbach is a history professor at Columbia University seeking to unseat incumbent Public Advocate Letitia James in this year's Demcratic primary. Eisenbach, who has raised minimal funds for his campaign, believes that James has not been a strong enough voice in addressing ethics problems in the administration of Mayor Bill de Blasio. He also believes James has not been active enough in addressing the city's small business crisis.

On the Max & Murphy podcast, Eisenbach discusses several of the reasons why he is running, what he believes in, and how he would approach the job of public advocate.
