On Tuesday, January 23rd the NY23rd Democratic Candidates will meet at the historic Smith Opera House in Geneva for an “Issue-Focused Forum”. This will be different from other Meet & Greets– the whole night will be questions and answers. They have eliminated the three-minute per candidate introductions by having their written biographies available as attendees enter the theater .
Although the organizers are creating questions on many issues, you are invited to hand in your questions in as you enter. If time allows, questions can be asked from the audience. The goal is to hear the candidates’ responses to our concerns.
This is NOT just for Democrats. This event will give all the opportunity to hear the alternatives to Rep. Reed. In order to give feedback to the candidates, you will be asked to fill out a “My Top Three” card and hand it in as you leave.
The Smith Opera House, one of the oldest operating performing arts theaters in the Country, has a seating capacity of 1,408. It is at 82 Seneca Street in Geneva. There’s plenty of parking in a public lot across the street. This is the first meeting of all of the candidates in the North-Eastern part of the NY-23rd. It is a short distance from Seneca and Yates Counties. It is a 40 minute drive from Watkins Glen, 50 minutes from Naples, an hour from Ithaca and an hour an 10 minutes from Corning.
This is being sponsored by a wide array of individuals and organizations such as ReedLastTerm, several Indivisible groups, the Geneva Democratic Committee, Tools for Social Change and others. For more information about the Forum follow this link.
