On August 29, 2018 Bestek was honored to be a part of the 2018 Democratic Gubernatorial Debates at Hofstra University in the David S. Mack Arena. The hour-long commercial-free debate was aired at 7pm. The event was held before an invited audience of 150, with no public tickets made available. It was moderated by Maurice DuBois of CBS2 News and Marcia Kramers, cheif policats correspondet for WCBS-TV.
In a continuing relationship with Hofstra, Bestek has worked closely with the university during the 2008, 2012, and 2016 presidential debates as well as the New York State Democratic Committee 2018 state convention in May 2018. We were also happy to work closely with longtime friend of Bestek, scenic designer Joseph M. Tenga of CBS and the entire CBS team.
