Dems to duke it out at annual trade show.

Visitors to this year's annual BuildingsNY trade show will get the chance to judge the city's Democratic mayoral hopefuls first hand.

All four Democratic candidates running for New York City mayor, including City Council Speaker Gifford Miller, Manhattan Borough President C. Virginia Fields, Congressman Anthony Weiner and former Bronx Borough President Freddy Ferrer, will participate in a mayoral forum that will kick off The Associated Builders and Owners of Greater New York's (ABO) 2005 BuildingsNY trade show on June 21, 2005.

The two-day show opens at 8:30 a.m. at the Jacob K. Javits Center with the debate the first order of the day.

Emmy-award winning FOX 5 News Reporter Mark Joyella will moderate the mayoral debate.

Admission is free and open to all visitors and exhibitors on a first-come, first-served basis. A continental breakfast will be offered.

"We are very excited to have all four mayoral hopefuls participate in this year's mayoral forum," said Nick LaPorte, executive director of the ABO. "We look forward to hearing the candidates' views, goals and positions."

Mark Joyella has won five Emmys for his reporting and writing and has twice earned honors from the Associated Press, including an award for his stories covering the Army's 24th Infantry Division during the first Gulf War.

His coverage of Hurricane Andrew received a spot news award from the Radio-Television News Directors Association. At FOX 5, a recent investigation into parking ticket quotas by the NYPD earned Joyella an Emmy nomination.
