New York’s 19th Congressional District is considered one of the few swing districts in the United States. The district encompasses 11 counties and nearly 200 municipalities. The seat is presently held by Congressman John Faso, who is running unopposed on the Republican Line.
If you are registered Democrat and are planning on voting in the Congressional primary in the spring, The New Paltz Oracle, Democracy Matters and The New Paltz College Democrats are offering the public a chance to get to know the names on the ballot.
This forum will allow all six registered candidates to come and speak on issues concerning the district, Hudson Valley, New York and the country. Several questions will be presented to them by the moderators, including questions submitted by attendees.
We are expecting all six registered candidates at the event: Jeff Beals, David Clegg, Antonio Delgado, Brian Flynn, Gareth Rhodes and Pat Ryan.
Tickets will be given out at the door. Space is limited to 400 persons. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m.
Co-sponsors: The New Paltz Democratic Committee, Move Forward New York, Gardiner Democratic Committee, NYPIRG
