(22nd in a series of posts on candidates for election)
At the monthly meeting of the Bethlehem City Democratic Committee (BCDC) last night, candidates were given two-minutes to speak. Not much time, but I think that hearing them even for a short time provides a helpful gauge of personality.
So Gadfly is glad to report that BCDC is hosting a candidates’ forum May 6, 6PM, at Steelworkers Hall, 53 E. Lehigh St. The expectation is that all candidates will be on stage together — so mark your calendars. Don’t miss!
The BCDC organizers didn’t elaborate on what the forum format will be. It will be interesting to see if it includes interaction among the candidates and questions from the audience.
Gadfly’s mission for all of us is better informed voting, so he hopes you will take advantage of all opportunities to learn as much as you can about each of the candidates.
So, lend an ear:
