Wednesday, March 15, 2017 — "Near the end of the three-hour town hall, de Blasio took a question from a member of IN-Tech Academy’s debate team, who asked for more funding for the club. “I don’t know if you know anything about my family. Did you know that my son Dante was on the debate team at his high school?.. Did you know that he was a state champion debater?” de Blasio asked the student. “Because of my strong interest in debate teams, we are going to see if we can help you get computers for your debate team, but if we succeed you have to lecture the other members of the debate team that you were the one who stayed out late at the town hall meeting to get the computers."
