Thursday, November 3, 7-9pm
Central Islip Senior High School Auditorium
For the first time ever, candidates for Suffolk County executive will meet to debate about how to strengthen and support diverse communities on Long Island, answering questions from community members concerned with the economy, public safety, and social services, and hopefully opening a dialogue that will continue for years to come.
The groundbreaking event, “Growing a Diverse Long Island: A Candidate Debate for Suffolk County Executive,” will be co-hosted by Noticia and the Long Island Civic Engagement Table and will take place on Thursday, November 3, 7-9pm at the Central Islip Senior High School, 85 Wheeler Road in Central Islip. Long Island Wins will cosponsor the event and Noticia’s Editor-in-Chief Eliana López will serve as moderator.
This newsmaking debate will bring candidates Angie Carpenter (R) and Steve Bellone (D) face-to-face with their constituents, offering voters the most direct, and final, opportunity of this campaign to hear both candidates’ agendas on the issues of most concern to Suffolk County’s diverse population.
Doors to the auditorium will open at 6pm. Further information is available from Noticia at 516-223-5678 or from the Long Island Civic Engagement Table at 917-494-5922.
