The HPCC and the League of Women Voters are holding a District 7 Candidates’ Forum on Thursday, October 17, 2013 from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. at the Union Project (801 Negley Avenue, Highland Park). All five candidates on the ballot in the November special election will be participating in the event:

Carol Emerson, past president of the League of Women Voters of Greater Pittsburgh, will serve as the moderator. HPCC and the League of Women Voters have solicited questions from members of the public prior to the event via social media. Attendees at the event will also be able to submit questions for consideration. Emerson will pose questions to all of the candidates, who will each be given an opportunity to respond. Candidates will also be allowed to offer rebuttals to responses from their opponents.
The event is free and open to the public.
