Strimling-Babin-Perchinski Showdown
The League's Real Deal Policy Forum on August 22nd will
host local Senate candidates.

The League's Real Deal Policy Forum will host candidates running for State Senate in District 8 and 9 on Tuesday, August 22nd, at the Reiche School, starting at 6:30 PM.

District 8 candidates include the current State Senator Ethan King Strimling, Republican challenger David Babin and Green Party challenger Kelsey Perchinski. As of this writing, only Babin has confirmed his attendance, but Strimling and Perchinski are expected to attend.

The District 9 contenders are Democratic State Representative Joe Brannigan and Republican David Fernald. They will be vying for the seat occupied by Senator Michael Brennan, who decided not to seek reelection.

The Real Deal Forums give young people and the public a way to engage in the process of electoral politics. The Real Deal gives voters a chance to meet with and ask candidates about them-selves and their policies, long before November's elections.

"We take a traditional format of meeting the candidate and spice it up" said Lisa McNeil, The Real Deal Organizer. The Real Deal is a potluck, and please contact the League with any questions at 772-3207 or portlandme@indyvoter.org
