I was informed shortly after posting the announcement about the 1st City Council District candidates forum at Neumann-Goretti this coming Thursday evening that there is also a forum for all of the 2nd District candidates that night as well. Our friends at the Newbold Neighbors Association are sponsoring the forum along with the South Broad Street Neighbors Association.
Date: Thursday, April 14, 2011
Time: 6:30 – 8:30 PM
Location: St. Agnes Medical Center Auditorium, 1900 S. Broad St.
All residents are invited to come and learn about the candidates for City Council in the 2nd district. Audience members will have an opportunity to ask questions, register to vote (remember, deadline is April 18), and meet your neighbors!
Like I said before, I had a chance to see most of the 2nd District candidates at the Urban Sustainability Forum’s candidate night last week. To put it mildly, they could stand to be questioned a bit more on sustainability and food access issues. We strongly encourage co-op members who live west of Broad Street to attend and, if possible, report back to us on what you hear.
