Eight Democratic candidates for New York City mayor running in the June 2021 primary appeared by Zoom on Saturday to discuss public housing, private housing, homelessness, and the issues and policies that connect them all. The candidates offered their thoughts on current policies, offered their ideas for the future, and discussed what they would do if they were mayor today. Participants were Carlos Menchaca, Eric Adams, Dianne Morales, Maya Wiley, Kathryn Garcia, Joycelin Taylor, Shaun Donovan, and Scott Stringer.
The forum was part of the 15th annual West Side Tenants' Conference, convened by Housing Conservation Coordinators, West Side Neighborhood Alliance, and others, and it was moderated by Gotham Gazette executive editor Ben Max.
