In the waning days of the campaign, there will be one last chance to evaluate the candidates competing in the upcoming Democratic Primary for the City Council seat in District 1.

We just heard from Henry Street Settlement that a forum will be held Tuesday, Sept. 5, 7-9 p.m. It’s sponsored by all of the Lower East Side’s settlement houses, along with the neighborhood coalition TUFF-LES, and will be held at the Manny Cantor Center, 197 East Broadway. The primary takes place Tuesday, Sept. 12.

Incumbent Margaret Chin faces three challengers. They are: Dashia Imperiale, Christopher Marte and Aaron Foldenauer. The district includes most of Lower Manhattan, including the Lower East Side and Chinatown.

The candidates will also take part in a forum this coming Thursday evening, Aug. 31, at Judson Memorial Church, 55 Washington Square South. It begins at 7 p.m. and is sponsored by the Villager.
