happy hour meet and greet, a debate of pre-selected issues, followed by a

The HCYR chairman Joshua
Sotomayor-Einstein stated they are “thrilled to engage our Democrat brothers in
a dialogue about where our nation and state is going” adding that “it will be
an epic battle of ideas that will benefit the community.” HCYD president Brian
Platt, said “well-informed voters are crucial to an effective democracy”,
adding further “we are hoping that this event will inspire meaningful
discussions around some of our most pressing issues.”
Both groups hope to bring
together members of the community from across the political spectrum in what
has been for both parties, a divisive presidential election.  Organizers look forward to highlighting their
policy differences in an engaging and meaningful way.
