“You cannot count on Elizabeth Crowley that’s the bottom line, “ said Robert Holden.
“In politics there are people who say a lot of things and then there are people who actually get results done,“ responded Crowley.
Crowley, who’s running for her third term, says her record speaks for itself, touting her success in securing funding for 54-hundred new classroom seats, enhanced public safety by hiring more cops, and preserving essential city services such as fire and EMS.
But, it may be Crowley’s support of closing Riker's Island, which draws the most distinction.
“I worry about the people who work there and the inmates there. They are not safe on that island,“ said Crowley.
Holden supports keeping it open because closing it would create more community jails.
“Why would anybody be for community jails have prisoners in the community I mean I don’t get that,“ said Holden.
