Yes, D.C., Washington City Paper Will Host a Council Debate at the Black Cat

Washington City Paper Hosts D.C. Council Debate April 15 at Black Cat

There's a special election for an at-large D.C. Council seat (and a budget autonomy referendum) approaching April 23, and it's time for you to figure out who to vote for. What better way to do it than while listening to the candidates over a few drinks?

Join Washington City Paper and your would-be leaders on Monday, April 15, from 7:30 to 9 p.m. on the main stage at the Black Cat (1811 14th St. NW) for a debate. Doors open at 7 p.m. The moderators will be LL Alan Suderman, NBC4's Tom Sherwood, and Examiner columnist Jonetta Rose Barras. (Thanks to NBC4 contributor Chuck Thies for helping to organize, as well.)

We've invited all the candidates:

  • Matt Frumin
  • Perry Redd
  • Elissa Silverman
  • Patrick Mara
  • Anita Bonds
  • Paul Zukerberg

So far, Frumin, Silverman, Mara, and Zukerberg have confirmed that they'll be there. (We also invited Michael Brown, who will still appear on the ballot, and he had confirmed he'd attend, but he dropped out yesterday.)

Check back on the LL blog for more details over the next couple of weeks. Got questions for the candidates? Send them to lldebate@washingtoncitypaper.com or tweet them using the hashtag #LooseLips between now and then. And don't forget to vote!
