WCP, along with NBC4’s Tom Sherwood and WPFW host Chuck Thies, is hosting a D.C. Council debate tonight that Managing Editor Mike Madden promises will be the only candidate forum this season that starts off with him taking drink orders from the candidates.
Of the six candidates for the April 26th special election who have raised $10,000, five are confirmed to attend the debate: Sekou Biddle, Josh Lopez, Patrick Mara, Vincent Orange, and Bryan Weaver.
Madden also promises “actual debate between the candidates instead of the usual ‘joint press conference’ format.” Along with the sponsors, WCP‘s Loose Lips columnist Alan Suderman and TBD editor Erik Wemple will pose questions. Audience members will also be permitted to ask questions of the candidates.
The debate starts at 7 p.m. at the Black Cat, 1811 14th Street, NW. More information is here.
