Democrats to Hold Candidates Forum

The six declared candidates for the Democratic nomination to challenge Representative Lee Zeldin in November are to appear in a forum on Friday, March 2, at St. Michael’s Lutheran Church on Montauk Highway in Amagansett. The forum is being organized by the East Hampton Town Democratic Committee and will begin at 7 p.m.

Kate Browning, Perry Gershon, Vivian Viloria-Fisher, David Pechefsky, Brendon Henry, and Elaine DiMasi are expected to attend. According to the committee, the hopefuls have been asked to be ready to explain what they would like to do should they be elected to represent the First Congressional District, and how they would plan to “topple Lee Zeldin,” in the words of a press release.
