UFT invites "final four" candidates to forum, sets stage for endorsement in Democratic mayoral primary

Press Releases

Four candidates for the June Democratic primary — Eric Adams, Scott Stringer, Maya Wiley and Andrew Yang — have been invited to take part in the final mayoral forum sponsored by the United Federation of Teachers.

The forum, chaired by UFT President Michael Mulgrew, will be held on Wednesday, April 7, at 4 p.m. at UFT headquarters at 52 Broadway. Mulgrew and the candidates are expected to appear in person (socially distanced), along with a small audience of UFT members. All others, including the press, will be able to watch online.

Mr. Mulgrew said: "Of the 12 candidates who have appeared at preliminary UFT forums, these four have reached the final round. Educators participating in this event will drill down, ask tough questions and see who really has what it takes to be a great mayor for public education and our city."

The forum is expected to be 90 minutes long.

The final decision on which candidate to endorse for the June 22 mayoral primary will be made by the UFT Delegate Assembly.
