|Can you find me in the audience?|
|The Albany Six|
The collection of thoughts and ideas from these six people, collectively, was awe-inspiring. Each candidate, whether left-leaning or right-leaning, managed at one point or another during the evening to connect with members of the audience.
|Happy B'day OA!|
When I arrived at the Library I was greeted by Nathan LeBron. Nathan made history four years ago when he became first Hispanic to run for Mayor in the City of Albany. He has a warmth about him that makes others feel comfortable. I also ran into Mónica M. Arias Miranda, who is the President and Chief Executive Officer of The Hispanic Coalition NY, Incorporated. She will soon add another "M" to her "list" of names beginning with that particular letter!
Speaking of "M," the first candidate to arrive at the APL was none other than Marlon Anderson. He just won't quit! No matter he couldn't get his petitions past the BOE: Marlon's his own man, running as a write-in. Love him or hate him, he oozes with political enthusiasm! Passionate about his city - always willing to share his time and two cents with reporters! Old media pals Dan Levy (WNYT) and Marc Gronich (jbiz) were also on hand. Two of the best "peeps" in the business! All of the candidates looked refreshed and ready to have a go! It was a remarkable evening, and I'll be filing a radio report Wednesday, if all goes according to plan.
