Connections_News_Highlight.jpg

Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul could face a new challenger for her seat – and he’s from her own party. New York City Council member Jumaane Williams is exploring a possible campaign. The Democrat calls himself an "activist-elected official” and has been outspoken about a number of social justice issues.

We talk to Williams about his possible run and how he would serve alongside a governor who might not agree with him.
