The PSC is sponsoring a mayoral candidates’ forum, focusing on higher education issues, on Tuesday, April 23, 2013, from 7:00 to 9:00 pm. The event will be held at Hunter College’s Silberman School of Social Work, located at 2180 Third Avenue and 119th Street.
“This is a chance to see the candidates and hear them answer questions on issues that affect us, as CUNY faculty and staff,” said Geoff Kurtz, assistant professor of political science at BMCC and a member of PSC’s Legislative Committee.
“Where do they stand on our issues?” asked Ron Hayduk, also a committee member and a political science professor at Queens. “This gives us an opportunity to find out, and the responses can help shape our endorsement decision.”
Kurtz urged PSC members to make every effort to attend. “A strong turnout means that we can have lots of members in that conversation, and that’s exciting,” he said. “It’s not a bad message to send to the candidates, either.”
