AIDSVote 2009 to host candidates

What will Bill de Blasio do to help undocumented immigrants living with HIV? What will David Yassky do to make sure more people get tested for HIV?

Find out the answers to these and other questions as candidates in the 2009 election for New York City Comptroller and Public Advocate participate in a community forum focused on AIDS issues facing New York City, September 1 from 4-6 p.m. at Restoration Plaza, 1368 Fulton Street.

All of the City Comptroller candidates have confirmed their attendance (Melinda Katz, John Liu, Joe Mendola, David Weperin, and David Yassky). Confirmed Public Advocate candidates include Bill de Blasio, Eric Gioia, Norman Siegel and Alex Zablocki.

The forum is sponsored by AIDSVote 2009, a coalition of people living with HIV/AIDS and Gay Men’s Health Crisis, Housing Works, Lower East Side Harm Reduction, the New York City AIDS Housing Network, Village Care and other AIDS and harm reduction service providers.

In order to find out where the Comptroller and Public Advocate candidates stand on these and other issues, AIDSVote 2009 sent questionnaires to the candidates. Highlights from those questionnaires are available online at AIDSVote 2009. The full questionnaires will be published on September 1, the day of the community forum.

AIDSVote 2009 will host a similar mayoral race forum before the general election in November. Details on that forum will be available later in the year.
