LA Congressional District 2 Candidate Forum

The Stone Center for Latin American Studies at Tulane University, Puentes New Orleans, and the Louisiana Association of Nonprofit Organizations LAVotes Campaign are co-sponsoring a Candidate Forum for Louisiana's 2nd Congressional District on Tuesday, October 28, 2008 from 7:00-9:00pm at the Qatar Ballroom in the Lavin Bernick Center of Tulane University.

All six of the remaining candidates in this race were invited to this forum. Four of the six candidates have confirmed their participation: Helena Moreno (D), Joseph Cao (R), Jerry Jacobs (I), Gregory Kahn (L).

The forum will be a two-part moderated event. During the first part, a moderator from one of the sponsoring organizations will pose a series of questions (probably 5-6) to the candidates, each of whom will be allowed 3 minutes to respond. During the second part, select questions submitted by audience members to the moderator before the start of the event will be posed to the candidates. The forum will concentrate on issues of importance to the local Latino community. It is free and open to the public. Please plan to come to Tulane University this Tuesday and be a part of this event. And to the NOLAblogger community, bring your computers and live-blog the event!

If anyone has any questions about the event, just drop me an email or leave them in the comments section. I hope to see you at the Forum.
