At the stroke of noon on Feb. 6th, VID, DID, Grand St. Dems, Coalition for District Alternatives, the United Democratic Organizations, New Downtown Democrats and the Village Reform Democratic Club hosted a well-attended Zoom forum for Public Advocate Candidates.  Those present:   Theo Chino , Anthony Herbert and Jumaane Williams.

At a 3:30pm endorsement meeting, VID selected both their Public Advocate and Manhattan DA endorsements after an hour and a half debate focused primarily on the Manhattan District Attorney race.  The candidates considered were:  Tahanie Aboushi, Alvin Bragg,  Liz Crotty, Diana Florence, Lucy Lang, , Janos Marton, Eliza Orlins, Dan Quart and Tali Farhadian Weinstein.  In addition to the latter debate Kelly Grace Price and a team of devoted members of VID’s Campaign Finance Committee presented a deep dive into the campaign finance records for the Manhattan District Attorney candidates.   

The VID membership chooses Jumaane Williams for Public Advocate and Alvin Bragg for Manhattan District Attorney.
