A few weeks ago we posted responses from two of the Senate candidates in the 33rd District to our issue survey and ran them here on the blog (Sen. Espada declined to participate). We've posted a link for the series in the upper right hand corner of this site for easy reference. Take a look.
Also, the Bronx News Network will be moderating a candidates' debate sponsored by the cycling and pedestrian advocacy group Transportation Alternatives on Thursday, Sept. 2 at 7 p.m. at Fordham Lutheran Church, 2340 Walton Ave. Candidates will discuss their positions on a variety of public transit issues and other critical issues facing the district. Gustavo Rivera and Daniel Padernacht have agreed to participate. Pedro Espada has declined.
As reported earlier, Padernacht and Rivera will also debate on BronxTalk (channel 67 on Cablevision) on Monday, Aug. 30 at 9 p.m. The debate will be re-aired at the same time throughout the week.
