Brooklyn Councilman Bill de Blasio is focused on securing affordable housing. And Queens Councilman Eric Gioia says his campaign is so grassroots, he'll go to voters houses and answer their questions if they get ten people together, which is about half the size of this audience.
The room is so small, people shout out questions, including 88-year-old Rita Resnick who asks: 'What do you do when you've lived 20 years longer than you thought?' Candidate Mark Green arrived last, using the remaining minutes of the forum to campaign for his old job.
