The candidates in the Ninth Congressional District will tape a televised debate on August 23, moderated by the publisher of the Queens Courier, Vickie Schnapps.
It’s unclear when exactly the debate will air, but it’ll be shown on Queens Public Television and, hopefully, rebroadcast on somebody’s YouTube channel.
I’ll be watching the debate from the sidelines, like many of you. But let’s try something fun: if you have any questions you’d like to ask the candidates — Democrat David Weprin or Republican Bob Turner — stick them in the comments section and maybe they’ll make it on air. Maybe.
