Surrogates representing the two major Democratic presidential candidates are expected to take part in a mock presidential primary town hall meeting hosted by We Are Women Warriors at 5:30 p.m. next Wednesday in the Frank E. Merriweather Library, 1324 Jefferson Ave. The New York State presidential primary election takes place April 19.
Sen. Bernie Sanders will be represented by two people active in his campaign locally – Erie Community College professor Thomas Grace and Brian Nowak. Erie County Democratic chairman Jeremy Zellner has been asked to send two representatives from Hillary Clinton’s local campaign.
The surrogates will present their candidates’ positions on various issues, using information from press releases, national debates, town hall meetings and social media. For more information, call We Are Women Warriors president Betty Jean Grant at 602-5877.
