Just a reminder that tomorrow is one of the few opportunities local residents will have to meet, greet and ask questions of the two leading candidates for the 9th Congressional District, recently vacated by Anthony Weiner.
It will be an orderly town hall-style evening, in which residents can pose questions of concern to the community to GOP candidate Bob Turner and Democratic candidate David Weprin. Although the event is organized by the Manhattan Beach Community Group, the civic tells us that it’s open to all residents of Southern Brooklyn. Several other groups, including the Sheepshead Bay / Plumb Beach Civic Association and the Madison-Marine-Homecrest Civic Association, are expected to attend, as are residents from all around.
The event will be Wednesday night, August 31, at 8 p.m. in P.S. 195 (131 Irwin Street).
The special election is September 13, and it looks like an increasingly close race, with Bob Turner currently leading in the Brooklyn portion of the district, and David Weprin just barely winning the entire district as a whole.
