Pulitzer Prize-winning former Newsday columnist Les Payne will moderate this important debate between the candidates for Manhattan District Attorney: Richard Aborn, Leslie Crocker-Snyder, and Cy Vance, Jr.

The Manhattan District Attorney’s office plays a central role in criminal justice policy in New York City and is a leading national voice on matters of law and order. This debate will examine the candidates’ positions on fundamental and sometimes controversial rights and liberties issues, including their positions on issues that concern transgender, lesbian, gay and bisexual New Yorkers.
