ALBANY, N.Y. -- With primary day two weeks away, Albany's Democratic mayoral candidates are keeping very busy.
Thanks to a big Democratic enrollment advantage in the city, the winner of that contest is expected to win the general election and become the Capital City's first new mayor in two decades.
City treasurer Kathy Sheehan had a double digit lead in the YNN-Siena poll released last month. Both Sheehan and her opponent, Corey Ellis, have argued that rebuilding neighborhoods and getting rid of abandoned buildings is a priority.
Sheehan sat down with Capital Tonight's Liz Benjamin to talk more about her campaign.
"We have a number of assets that are not so far gone where we have neighborhoods completely wiped out. If we look at vacant and abandoned buildings as an asset, then we start to build a plan for how we are going to get those assets back on the tax roll," said Sheehan.
Former city councilman and Albany mayoral candidate Corey Ellis spoke on Capital Tonight Monday night.
Both candidates have accepted YNN's invitation to a televised debate on the College of Saint Rose campus. That will take place Tuesday, September 3rd at 7 p.m.
