New York Public Interest Research Group Executice Director Blair Horner knew New York state Assemblyman Richard Brodsky, who died Wednesday at age 73 of COVID-19, since the 1980s. Often, their priorities overlapped. Horner spoke with WAMC News Wednesday about Brodsky's legacy, mail-in voting for June 23's primary, and the rest of the 2020 legislative session.
