Yang builds out platform in presidential bid


Democratic presidential hopeful and tech entrepreneur Andrew Yang is testing out his policy chops and establishing a rapport with activists in the Monadnock Region.

Yang has dedicated most of his campaigning efforts so far to pushing universal basic income into the Democratic political conversation hes even testing out his proposal to give every American a $1,000 monthly stipend by personally paying that rate to a family in Goffstown. But he delved into other subjects with members of the N.H. Young Democrats and other Elm City residents in his second visit to Keene, on Tuesday.

Yang also met with voters at Post and Beam Brewing in Peterborough during his Monadnock Region swing Tuesday before heading east, ending his New Hampshire tour with a speech at his high school alma mater, Phillips Exeter Academy.

Much of the exchange between Yang and Keene voters at the Works Cafe centered around health care and education.

1. Perhaps before test out his policy chops, he should work on his public awareness?

I can comfortably say that fewer people know anything about him than know about John Delaney.
