Democratic Primary Debate Rescheduled

The six declared candidates for the Democratic nomination to challenge Representative Lee Zeldin in November are to appear in a forum on Friday 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 6:30 p.m. It had been originally scheduled for March 2 but was canceled at the last minute due to a coastal storm with winds that reached 60 miles per hour.

Kate Browning, Perry Gershon, Vivian Viloria-Fisher, Bruce Miller, 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.
