Although he is running against a seasoned politician, Justin Elicker is not a new face in New Haven politics. The former alder faced off against now-mayor Toni Harp in 2013, and this year, they are set to do it again.
This hour, we sit down with the candidate for mayor of New Haven, ahead of the September 10th primary.
With a familiar matchup back on the ballot, we ask Elicker what makes him stand out as a candidate this time around? We take your calls and comments, too. What questions do you have for the candidate?
- Justin Elicker - Candidate for Mayor of New Haven
- Paul Bass - Editor of the New Haven Independent
Correction: Guest Paul Bass erroneously stated that the Yale unions have backed Justin Elicker. They have, in fact, endorsed Toni Harp. The podcast audio and rebroadcast have been edited to correct this error.
