Matt Nosanchuk shares his perspective In this article that discusses the intersection of progressive politics, israel, and New york city elections

Most of the 65 respondents — or 84% — said they would be willing to visit Israel while in office, while 79% of those surveyed expressed opposition to BDS.
‘New Yorkers are not so far left as one might believe from some of the reports that are out there,’ said Matt Nosanchuk, who led the survey and is NYJA’s president and co-founder, told JI.
None of the DSA-endorsed candidates appear to have responded to the NYJA questionnaire.”
