So who's running?
As you may perhaps recall, it having been covered in some detail here and elsewhere, there was a primary for the 11th Congressional District seat this year, in which City Councilmember Yvette Clarke prevailed. She is now vacating her seat on the Council to go to Washington, creating a vacancy, which in turn will now be filled in a special election expected to draw the metaphorical cast of thousands.
A staffer with one of the nascent campaigns emails over this invite to the first candidate forum, and advises that the cast of contenders will likely change:
In order to have the public meet the candidates for the 40th City Council district City Council seat, recently vacated by Congresswoman Yvette Clark, we have invited candidates: Joel Towney, Zenobia McNally, Harry Schiffman, Jennifer James, Roy Hastik, Dr. Mathieu Eugene, Jesse Hamilton, Michelle Adolphe, Mo Razvi, Wellington Sharpe, and Victor Babb.
We are still confirming candidacy for this list, and more candidates may be invited.
