PA7: Candidates Agree To Debates and Forums
Forward with four.
Democrat Susan Wild, Republican Marty Nothstein, and Libertarian Tim Silfies have agreed to participate in three forums and one debate before the residents of the 7th Congressional District elect their new congressional representative, reported by the Morning Call.
The first policy forum, recorded Monday, will air on September 13 at 6 pm on 88.1 FM and wdiy.org. The hour long discussion, hosted by Alan Jennings, executive director of the Community Action Committee of the Lehigh Valley, centered around minimum wage, healthcare, student debt, diplomacy, and even questioned candidates on their thought of Amazon, according to the Morning Call.
The lone live debate will be hosted by PBS39 and moderated by their very own Monica Evans at 7 pm on October 23, taking place at Northampton Community College’s Lipkin Theater.
The next forum lined up will be taped October 9 at 11:30 am on WFMZ’s “Business Matters” program. The forum, organized by the Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce, will air in two parts on October 15 and 22 starting at 7:30 pm. The Morning Call article provides more specifics for people interested in attending.
The third forum will be hosted the Lehigh Valley Economic Development Corporation, moderated by Don Cunningham, the group’s president and CEO on October 18 from 4:00pm-6:30 pm.
The Libertarian, Silfies said he was open for more forums and debates.
“I’m looking forward to debating the issues with my opponents, and providing a voice for so many voters in the 7th District who are fed up with both of the establishment political parties and looking for something different,” he said.
A Morning Call article cites that another forum hosted by the League of Women Voters may be added to the schedule as well.
