Be a part of New York City Politics: Help Decide NYC
With the 2012 election results quickly becoming old news, New Yorkers will soon turn their attention to the 59 city races that will be decided in November of 2013. New York voters will elect a new Mayor for the first time in twelve years as well as deciding on a Comptroller, Public Advocate, five Borough Presidents, and 51 City Council seats; it’s going to be a wild, exciting, and intense year and the soon-to-launch DecideNYC.com will be the site that New Yorkers turn to for all things politics. At DecideNYC, we will track the 59 races, providing in-depth, unbiased reporting on the candidates, their platforms, the key issues facing New Yorkers, and more. To our team, we are seeking to add the contributions of four part-time student-journalists: individuals who possess a strong interest in politics as well as excellent research, writing, organizational, and interpersonal skills. Roles available are flexible and can include covering events and conducting interviews.
