This coming November will be a critical time for Long Islanders. With several local elections across Nassau and Suffolk Counties, what happens now will shape the future of our communities for years to come.
Long Island Wins and its allies will be helping community members make an informed decision by hosting two important candidate forums as part of our “Growing a Diverse Long Island” series. The forums will bring the candidates face-to-face with their constituents, offering voters the most direct opportunity of this campaign to hear the candidates’ agendas on the issues of most concern to Long Island’s diverse population.
On October 22, Long Island Wins and the Long Island Civic Engagement Table (LICET) will co-host a candidate forum with the candidates for Suffolk County Legislature’s 7th District, Robert Calarco and John Halverson; and Brookhaven Town Supervisor, Ed Romaine and Vivian Viloria-Fisher.
The forum will take place at the historic Gordon Heights Fire House, at 23 Hawkins Ave., Medford, NY.
Then, on October 24, Long Island Wins, LICET and Noticia will be hosting a candidate forum for Nassau County Executive, featuring Ed Mangano and Tom Suozzi.
This forum will take place at Circulo de la Hispanidad, at 605 Peninsula Blvd, Hempstead, NY.
The forums, which will be presented alongside a host of community and civic groups, will debate how to strengthen and support diverse communities on Long Island, featuring questions about the economy, diversity, and social policy. These bilingual forums, featuring simultaneous interpretation, will include direct participation from community members from an extensive range of grassroots organizations on Long Island, continuing a dialogue that Long Island Wins, LICET and Noticia have begun fostering through their “Growing a Diverse Long Island” series.
Please join Long Island Wins and our allies next week for these two very important candidate forums and get informed about the most key issues facing our diverse communities leading up to the November elections.
