The debate this afternoon for the 45th House of Delegates district Democratic nomination was put on by the Mt. Vernon District Democratic Committee, and ably moderated by Matt Bell. Below, and also in the comments section, please see video from the debate (the first question was on the top priority each candidate would have as delegate). The candidates are (L-R) Craig Fifer, Clarence Tong, Larry Altenburg, Mark Levine and Julie Jakopic. In my view, these are all smart, articulate candidates – they certainly all performed well today! – really an “embarrassment of riches” in many ways, and also a tough choice for voters on June 9 (and for me in terms of who to endorse, if anyone)!
