Welcome to PoliticsNY with Skye: Behind the Curtain – Ep. 21, the show that takes you backstage, behind the scenes of NY’s biggest production: government.
Michael Skelly does public relations for a variety of clients, most of which are labor unions. In this interview, Skye and Michael talk all about the controversial closing of one of the most violent prisons in our country, which is right here in NYC: Rikers Island. There’s been talk about closing Rikers and instead moving prisoners to multiple smaller jails throughout the boroughs. But what do the corrections officers prefer? What will our new City Council and new Mayor vote to do? What can you do to help have your voice heard? Tune in here on #PoliticsNYwithSkye
