Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney Campaigning On Roosevelt Island In Support Of Rebecca Seawright As Democratic Party Nominee For NY State 76 Assembly District Last Tuesday - Watch All The 76 AD Democratic Candidates, Ed Hartzog, Gus Christensen, David Menegon and Rebecca Seawright Debate Issues

I asked Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney about the subject of her conversation with the Roosevelt Island Operating Corp (RIOC). A spokesperson for Ms. Maloney said that the purpose of her trip on Tuesday to Roosevelt Island was to meet supporters and campaign for Rebecca Seawright as the Democratic Party nominee for the NY State 76 Assembly District (Roosevelt Island and the Upper East Side).

According to Ms. Maloney's spokesperson, there were no conversations with RIOC other than a chance meeting with members of RIOC at Good Shepherd Plaza which resulted in the tweeted picture. From left to right, RIOC Director Howard Polivy, RIOC President Charlene Indelicato, Congresswoman Maloney, 76 Assembly Candidate Rebecca Seawright, RIOC CFO Frances Walton and RIOC General Counsel Don Lewis.
