RIRA Hosting Town Hall Meeting Tonight For Democratic Party Candidates Seeking To Represent Roosevelt Island In NY State 76 Assembly District At Good Shepherd - Meet And Ask Questions Of David Menegon, Ed Hartzog, Gus Christensen & Rebecca Seawright

The Roosevelt Island Residents Association (RIRA) Governance Committee will host a Meet The Candidates For the NY State Assembly 76 District Democratic Party nomination tonight from 8 - 10 PM at the Good Shepherd Community Center (543 Main Street).

The 76 NY State Assembly District comprises Roosevelt Island and the Upper East Side. We are currently represented by Assembly Member Micah Kellner who declined to run for re-election.

According to RIRA President Jeff Escobar:
... As fall approaches, election season draws near. This year will be pivotal for Roosevelt Island -- our District will be electing a new Assemblymember to represent us in Albany. The Democratic primary for the seat is Tuesday, September 9. Understanding its importance, the Government Relations Committee of the RIRA Common Council is sponsoring a Town Meeting on Tuesday, August 5, at 8 p.m. at the Good Shepherd Center, to give all of you the opportunity to meet the candidates. Come and directly ask the tough questions of Gus Christensen, Ed Hartzog, David Menegon, and Rebecca Seawright, to see if they truly understand the stakes here on the Island, and if they have what it takes to represent us....
