Tonight: 33rd Senate District Candidates Debate

The Bronx News Network will be moderating a debate tonight at 7 p.m. at Fordham Evangelical Lutheran Church, 2430 Walton Ave. (just south of Fordham Road) between candidates of the 33rd Senate District.

The debate is being hosted by nonprofit groups Transportation Alternatives and Picture the Homeless, so there will be questions about transit and homelessness. We will also be asking about other issues affecting the 33rd District and taking questions from the audience. Come, participate and get answers so you can make an informed decision on Sept. 14 (if you're a Democrat) and Nov. 4 (if you're a voter of any party).

(Note: if there are burning issues you would like discussed, leave the questions or issue topics in the "comments" section and we'll try our best to address them at the debate tonight.)

The incumbent Pedro Espada Jr. has declined to attend tonight's debate (or any other debate or even answer a simple survey of questions that we gave out to all of the 33rd District Democratic candidates). 

But candidates Gustavo Rivera and Dan Padernacht (both Democrats) as well as John Reynolds (Green Party) have all confirmed with Transportation Alternatives that they will be attending.


  1. Oh great. Another opportunity to hear Dan Padernacht talk about his family endlessly. YAWN!

    firstly good luck tonight

    secondly, since your a bronx blog do not forget about the debate NAACP is having on the east side of the bronx on tremont (info found on www.westsidebx.blogspot.com)
    but finally as a question:

    could you ask ANY AND ALL of the candidates tonight:
    what 3 community isses have these candidates been involved within the last 10 years?

    the answers might bring out if we have community insiders---or more community outsiders!!!???

  3. Anthony you are a politcal leech. Why don't you crawl back to the rock you crawled out from...
