Mayoral Candidates Weigh in on Muslim Issues
by Carla Astudillo
As part of a growing but still underserved electorate, Muslim, Arab and South Asian New Yorkers finally got a chance to hear what the mayoral candidates, if elected, would do for their communities.
Six Democratic mayoral candidates, along with Independence Party nominee Adolfo Carrión, faced off on Sunday in a mayoral candidate forum hosted by the Arab American Association of New York and the Islamic Center at New York University.
According to the Muslim Democratic Club of New York, there are 105,000 registered Muslim voters in New York City, making up 10 percent of the total electorate.
