I spent most of my August braving the brutal, near freezing temps of 30 Rockefeller Plaza at the NBC studios. It was tough, but it was for a great cause.
A little less than a month ago, I was part of the team that helped to produce the Video Voter Guide: a tool designed to provide New Yorkers with profiles of candidates that will help them make more informed decisions in the voting booth. The Video Voter Guide is a project of the Voter Assistance Commission, in partnership with NYCTV, media partner NBC NY Nonstop, and the NYC Campaign Finance Board. Candidates participating in the Guide were asked to prepare statements that conveyed their reasons for seeking office and reflect the key planks of their platforms. They presented their statements in the language(s) of their choice. Translations are provided in Spanish (Citywide), Chinese (Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens) and Korean (Queens).
Check out the fruits of our labor and VOTE on September 15th!
