(Long Island, NY) On September 23rd, incumbent democratic candidate Tim Bishop and republican challenger Randy Altschuler will be front and center at a candidates debate organized by the Long Island Organizing Network (LION). LION is a coalition of faith-based, community and labor organizations from across Long Island united for the common good. The candidates will be asked controversial questions on issues ranging from immigration to health care by the award winning reporter Joye Brown from Newsday.
The race for New York’s first congressional district will be closely watched across the country, as last time these candidates ran against each other in 2010, Tim Bishop won by only 593 votes. The results were reached five weeks past election day after an audit of voting machines by the Suffolk County Board of Elections.
LION has decided to hold this debate at the First Baptist Church of Riverhead, where Reverend Charles Coverdale pastors. “Put yourself in a position to make an informed choice on election day. Come and hear for yourself what Randy Altschuler and Tim Bishop have to say about the issues that are important to you” said Rev. Charles Coverdale about the upcoming event.
Organizers plan on packing the church on Sunday September 23rd for this unique event. First Baptist Church of Riverhead will open their doors for the debate at 3:30pm. Please call 631-384-7494 to register as space is limited.
