An Actual Debate in the 34th

WG News + Arts held a candidates forum for the 34th District last night. For a while, it looked like it would be yet another one-sided discussion, this time with just Gerry Esposito (you may remember that the last two times Diana Reyna was the only candidate to show).

Well, at the last minute Diana Reyna decided she would attend. So kudos to her (the only candidate to appear at all four candidate debates/forums). And kudos to Gerry Esposito, who has now attended two of the four (and gets extra credit for appearing at a fifth event that wound up getting cancelled). Notably absent at all one of these events is the third candidate in the race, Maritza Davila.

And while I’m at it, kudos to WG News + Arts and the Brooklyn Rail for organizing the whole event.
