  • his involvement with Downtown Independent Democrats (DID) and his role as (one of two) District Leader;
  • some of the dynamics regarding his Occupy-supportive resolution ultimately passed by DID;
  • his ideas, proposals and strategies on campaign finance reform;
  • differences in perspectives between grass-roots, partisan Democrats and movement liberals.
