October 21, 2019 - Max & Murphy Podcast: The Candidates for Public Advocate

Jumaane Williams, Joseph Borelli, Devin Balkind

There's an election for New York City Public Advocate this fall, and just ahead of the October 26 start of early voting and Election Day, November 5, we spoke with incumbent Public Advocate Jumaane Williams, a Democrat, and his challengers: City Council Member Joe Borelli, a Staten Island Republican, and Devin Balkind, a civic technologist who is the Libertarian Party nominee. Each of the three joined the show for about 15 minutes to discuss his platform.

Listen to the conversation and let us know what you think -- we're on Twitter @TweetBenMax and @JarrettMurphy. You can listen to the show through the embedded audio below or download the episode wherever you get your podcasts, under "Max & Murphy."
