A Forum for Whichever Candidates Make It

Pending their official certification as official City Council candidates, Mathieu Eugene and the gang will participate in a forum tonight in the lead-up to a second special election for the 40th Council seat in Brooklyn.

The event, to take place at Vox Pop, will be happening just hours after a 1:30 hearing at the city Board of Elections to determine which candidates will appear on the ballot.

One prospective candidate, Darly Brutus, was already removed because none of her petitions had witnesses, according to a BOE spokesperson.
