Black Westchester was planning on holding a Peekskill Mayoral Debate to give the residents who have been calling for the debate of the two candidates running for Peekskill Mayor on our People Before Politics Radio Show. We were unable to confirm a date with the two candidates.
We had planned to hold it either Sunday, October 27th or November 3rd from 6:30 – 7:30 PM, but one date was good for one of the candidates and the other week was better for the other one.
We regretfully were not able to give the people what they wanted but since both candidates had their 30-minute interviews we are posting them here in the same post to give you one last look at your Peekskill Mayoral Candidates.
Mayor Andre K. Rainey (D,WF) stopped by the studio, Sunday, October 6th (see video below)
Vincent A. Vesce (R,C,I) stopped by the studio, Sunday, September 29th (see interview below)
The other major race in Peekskill is the City Council race, we did not interview any of the council candidates but their names are below.
Council (vote for 3)
Councilwoman Vivian C. Mckenzie, D,WF
Councilwoman Kathleen E. Talbot, D,WF
