Candidates Forum on Thursday, October 25, 2018

The Leagues of Women Voters of Northampton County and Lehigh County are co-sponsoring a Candidates’ Forum for the 7th Congressional District race on Thursday, October 25, 2018 at 7:00 pm until about 8:30 pm. The Forum is being hosted at Gracedale’s chapel in Nazareth. Doors open at 6:30 pm to allow some time to meet and greet your candidates. Parking is plentiful.  Volunteers will be outside to direct you to the right parking lot and entrance to the building.

The 7th US Congressional District includes Lehigh and Northampton Counties, and the lower part of Monroe County in a new district*. Vying for the Congressional seat representing this new district are Republican Marty Nothstein and Democratic candidate Susan Wild and Libertarian candidate Tim Silfies. All candidates are invited and have agreed to attend the October forum. Dr. John Kincaid of the Lafayette College will be moderating.

Bring your questions and learn which candidate fits your political interests. It promises to be a very interesting event! It is important for voters to be informed in order to make the best choice possible.
