If you missed Tuesday’s night’s candidate forum at the East River Cooperative, there’s another opportunity to learn about the special election in 65th Assembly District next week. The election takes place April 19. The winning candidate will serve the remainder of Sheldon Silver’s term, and then run for re-election in the fall.

Our own Ed Litvak will be the moderator, joined by reporters from World Journal, China Press, Sing Tao Daily and SinoVision. We’ll be covering issues of specific importance in Chinatown, but will also address other general topics.
The Manny Cantor Center is located at 197 East Broadway. we hope you’ll join us Wednesday night.
