Ken Biberaj on Creative Ways to Campaign for Office on a Budget

In Chapter 12 of 23 in his 2013 Capture Your Flag interview, New York City Council Candidate Ken Biberaj answers "What Different Approaches Are You Taking to Connect Personally with Voters?" Limited by budget from running radio and television ads, Biberaj connects with voters by taking the campaign to them. He holds house parties in their buildings, visits grocery stores in their neighborhoods, and, for over a year, stands outside subway stops each day to say hello and talk to voters.

He is also a public relations executive for the Russian Tea Room restaurant at One Fifty Fifty Seven Corporation, a family business focused on real estate development, investment sales and retail leasing.
