After months of Zoom discussions, WABC radio did something refreshing last week: hold a real, live, in-person, debate, with candidates standing at podiums and talking to each other (not at a screen). The three supposedly leading candidates declined to do the hard work of showing up, giving Kathryn Garcia, former sanitation commissioner, a chance to shine on the stage.
Who did show besides Garcia? Shaun Donovan, former Bloomberg housing director and Obama budget director; Ray McGuire, former Citigroup investment-banking head; and Maya Wiley, Mayor de Blasio’s former counsel.
Good for them.
