This is being billed as a “combined pre-primary candidates forum” for Mayor and 34th District council member. So far, only Tony Avella in the mayoral race and Gerry Esposito in the council race are comitted, but Bill Thompson, Diana Reyna and Maritza Davila are all invited. At least, hopefully the council candidates will show.
The event is being put on by WG News + Arts and the Brooklyn Rail, and will be moderated by Brooklyn Rail editor Ted Hamm. It’s all happening this Tuesday at The Boiler – even if the other council candidates don’t show up, this is a rare opportunity to hear at least one of the contestants for the 34th seat speak.
When: Tuesday, September 8, 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Where: The Boiler (Pierogi Gallery), 191 North 14th Street
