SOUTH BRONX — If you missed last month's forum for the candidates running to fill the vacant South Bronx City Council seat, you're in luck: you can watch the whole thing online.
BronxNet has posted a video of the entire candidates forum on their website for interested voters to see how the prospective council members handle questions on topics ranging from immigration to gun violence to community development.
The forum, put on by Nos Quedamos and co-sponsored by DNAinfo New York, featured several candidates running for Maria del Carmen Arroyo's old City Council seat in the 17th District, including Rafael Salamanca, Julio Pabón, Rev. J. Loren Russell, Joann Otero and Marlon Molina.
It featured candidates who were recently kicked off of the ballot as well, including Amanda Septimo, Carlton Curry, Elliott Quinones, John Perez and Helen Foreman-Hines.
The special election for Arroyo's old seat has been set for Feb. 23, and the group Community Access has scheduled another candidates forum for Feb. 18. DNAinfo New York will assist with moderating the event.
BronxNet also plans to air the Nos Quedamos forum on TV multiple times before the election, including at 6 p.m. on Feb. 11 and 12, at 7 p.m. on Feb. 13 and at 1:30 p.m. on Feb. 14.
