WANT TO TALK TO MAYORAL CANDIDATE ANDREW YANG?
Our friend, entrepreneur and transit advocate, Alec Hess is hosting a PRIVATE Zoom with mayoral candidate, Andrew Yang where you can ask him your questions, directly. This won’t be the same as larger format mayoral Zooms but a private one where you can actually chat with Yang. A few topics they may be talking about:
- Affordable Housing
- Vaccine – Status App
- Green transportation
- Human centered economy
WHY SHOULD I DO THIS?
We are working on getting in touch with all of the mayoral candidates so that YOU can learn more before the elections this year. This past year has shown us how important the Mayor is and if you’ve felt at all unhappy with any of NY’s policies, you can and should be proactive with your vote this year.
The best way to know who to vote for is to learn about your mayoral candidates. What are their policies? What are their plans? Now, with Zoom – it’s easier than ever!
HOW DO WE SIGN UP?
Traditionally, invitees have to donate a minimum of $250 but ciaooo! readers can join with any donation amount. New York will match 8x for each campaign dollar donated, meaning for every $100 you donate, Andrew Yang’s campaign gets $800.
The event takes place via ZOOM on March 11th at 6PM.
