Brooklyn City Council member Jumaane Williams sits down with Jarrett Murphy, of City Limits, and Ben Max, of Gotham Gazette, for an episode of their podcast, Max & Murphy, less than two weeks after announcing his run for lieutenant governor of the state of New York. He speaks about why he is running and his opinion of Gov. Andrew Cuomo. Williams also discusses his position on issues like marriage equality, a subject matter that caused him to lose support in the past when running for the Council speaker position.

Go to City Limits to listen to the podcast. For more on Williams and Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul, read the Gotham Gazette story, “As Hochul Pushes Cuomo Agenda, Williams Takes on Both in Primary Challenge.”
