The four candidates running for the Democratic slot in the Sixth Congressional District race squabbled over a variety of issues in a and, this week, on NY 1.
Now, Patch wants to know which issue you believe is most important for the district.
During the May debate at the Flushing Library, state Assemblyman Rory Lancman, D-Fresh Meadows, and Councilman Dan Halloran, R-Whitestone, disagreed on the role of government in job creation.
Assemblywoman Grace Meng, D-Flushing, and Lancman both believe U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder should investigate the city Police Department’s stop-and-frisk policy, while Bayside doctor Robert Mittman and Councilwoman Elizabeth Crowley, D-Middle Village, do not.
In NY 1’s debate, Crowley suggested that Lancman spent too much time focusing on the security of Israel, while the assemblyman said he believed it was “an extremely important issue.”
Lancman has said he’d like to lift the cap on Social Security taxes for those earning more than $110,000 per year, but Meng and Crowley disagreed, according to NY 1.
Cast your vote in Patch’s poll on which of these issues is the most important to you and post your comments in the section provided below.
