MONDAY: Harlem Candidates Forum and Debate for September 14 Primary Election

| August 21, 2010 | 2 Comments

On Monday, August 23rd from 6 pm to 9 pm, there will be Candidates Forum and Debate moderated by Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Les Payne at Convent Avenue Baptist Church (420 West 145th Street) in Harlem.

Rep. Charles Rangel, State Senator Bill Perkins, State Assembly Member Keith L.T. Wright will debate their challengers (candidates running for the offices of  U.S. House of Representatives 15th Congressional District, NYS Senate 30th District and NYS Assembly 15th District) and defend their records before the Harlem and Upper Manhattan residents vote for their candidate in the Democratic Party primary on September 14, 2010.

This event is sponsored by the Gang of Six (G6), a group of concerned citizens from three of the largest private apartment complexes in Harlem, Lenox Terrace, Riverton and Savoy Park, who came together two years ago with the goal of providing information of concern to Harlem residents in the areas of housing, education, health and overall quality of life.
