It's up to you, New York!

Here's a short poetic piece in a spirit of this crucial pre-election contest:

Come one, come all
Let's cheer and jeer the victory and concession speeches
Some of the Candidates have returned "Home" to New York

For they wish to express their "New York State of Mind"
While others simply hope to be part of it, New York, New York
The candidates are running in their vagabond shoes

Presidential Mock Debate: Donald Trump vs. Bernie Sanders vs. Gary Johnson

There are many ways to get involved in the democratic process — organize and advocate on a grassroots level; part take in the get-out-the-vote efforts; organize or attend fundraisers, etc.

A note from the NYCPF Organizer, Thomas K

In looking back, 2015 was quite memorable, as we had many enjoyable events this past year. The group continues to grow and there is strong momentum, as we enter into the election year.

From the high-profile Supreme Court decisions, to the Presidential Election preseason buzz, and from the foreign policy complications to the National Security concerns, this group covered quite a bit of grounds this year.

I look forward to a hosting and moderating more vibrant discussions in the Upcoming Year!

Important Announcement: NYC Politics is now “The NYC Political Forum”

This posting is intended for informational purposes regarding the changes to this group, effective August 2015.

2) There will be no fees or membership dues required — I believe in offering these events to everyone at no cost.
