aarpSounds like it’s going to be huge.

[Press Release] AARP, Hispanic Federation, Asian American Federation, NAACP, NALEO Teaming Up to Host NYC Mayoral Town Hall on Key Multicultural 50+ Issues 

Univision, WABC, Amsterdam News, SinoTV/WKDM 1380 AM On Board to Ensure Candidates Answer Crucial Voting Bloc’s Pressing Questions 

What: The 50+ vote will account for more than half of all votes cast in the NYC Mayoral elections (about 1/3 of all ballots cast will come from an AARP member), with the multicultural 50+ vote making up 47% of all voters – together, these groups will likely determine the next Mayor. AARP, The Hispanic Federation, Asian American Federation, NAACP & National Association of Latino Elected & Appointed Officials (NALEO), the key groups representing these critical voting blocs are holding the first-of-its-kind 50+ multicultural NYC Mayoral primary election debate on August 6th bringing the powerhouse voting group’s issues front and center for the candidates. Univision is serving as the prime media sponsor, with WABC, Amsterdam News and SinoTV/WKDM 1380 AM serving as media panelists, audience members will also have the chance to ask questions.

When: Tuesday, August 6

            10-Noon (doors open at 9:15 AM)

Where: Hunter College

              Assembly Hall (North Buidling)

 Why:   Set to account for nearly half of all votes cast in the NYC Mayoral elections, multicultural 50+ voters may well determine the candidates who move on to the General Election.  The groups have key issues they are looking for the candidates to address: housing affordability, jobs and the economy, sandwich generation issues such as caring for aging parents and older children, as well as how to make NYC a better place to live, work and age. This will be the first time these groups have come together to press the candidates to tackle crucial issues facing NYC multicultural communities.
