In today’s 2022 Meet the Candidate interview, host Jane Hanson speaks with attorney Jim Magee, who is running for Assembly District 37 in Western Queens. Jim, who for the last eight years has run his own criminal defense practice, is a first-time candidate. He explains what inspired him to run: the bail reform, which he aims to revisit if he is elected. Jim, a father of two, always admired his teachers growing up, and is determined to someday go back to his high school to teach history.
