Oct. 5, 2021, Albany, NY — Alicia Purdy, the lead challenger to incumbent mayor Kathy Sheehan for Mayor of Albany, will participate in a mayoral forum hosted by Channel Albany, WCDB, ASP, and ATV, on the SUNY Albany campus on Thursday, October 7 at 6:00 p.m. The event will be live streamed and there will be room for limited in-person attendees. For in-person information, contact moderator and host Marc Gronich, News Director of Statewide News Service: SWNSOnline@gmail.com.
According to Purdy:
“Although local, mainstream media outlets have revealed their true motivation, operating brazenly as the government-run PR team for failed incumbent Kathy Sheehan, I have been impressed by the efforts of non-mainstream, local media, who have afforded Albany’s mayoral candidates every opportunity to have their voices heard and their platforms shared to residents in Albany who want TRANSFORMATION.”
“While failed incumbent mayor Kathy Sheehan slinks away in shame and refuses to participate in these events rather than face the disapproval and anger of the people who elected her, I will – again – show up for the people of Albany, as I always do, and will continue to do. For the past year, I’ve attended forums for the disabled community, law enforcement, community issues, housing, youth, college students and many more- and Kathy Sheehan has refused to attend any of them. Clearly she is terrified of facing the reality of her multiple failures- and she should be. Shame on her. As Mayor of Albany, I will always show up – no event is too small. No group of people too unimportant. No voter is too insignificant. Each matters to me.”
