Streetsblog’s Guide to Thursday’s Senate and Assembly Primaries – Streetsblog New York City
You can’t tell the players without a scorecard — or without Streetsblog’s candidate questionnaires!
Insurgent candidates are challenging incumbents in Albany this year like never before — and for good reason: The State Senate’s failure to pass speed camera legislation this summer, the legislature’s stall on congestion pricing, and the upper chamber’s general political dysfunction are motivating people to focus on whether Albany itself is working.
So Streetsblog asked candidates in the upcoming Democratic primaries to answer basic questions about street safety and mobility. Click below for their answers (and click here if you need a map to know what Senate or Assembly district you’re in):
Senate District 11 (Queens): John Liu vs.
Senate District 13 (Queens): Jessica Ramos vs. Jose Peralta
Assembly District 39 (Queens): Catalina Cruz vs. Ari Espinal
