CANDIDATES FORUM for New 7th Congressional District. The Leagues of Women Voters for Northampton and Lehigh Counties are co-sponsoring a forum for candidates vying for their parties candidacy in the Primary Election, on May 2nd.
The new 7th Congressional District will encompass parts of the Lehigh Valley and a part of Monroe County.
Democrats running are: Roger Ruggles, John Morganelli, Susan Wild, David Clark, Greg Edwards, and Rick Daugherty.
Republicans: Dean Browning.
ALL candidates have been invited to participate in the forum.
Doors will open at 6:30pm, so that there is some time for a 'meet and greet' for the public with the candidates before the forum starts.

This forum is free and open to the public.
For additional information about the event contact the LWV of Northampton County at 610-252-1339, or visit us on Facebook.
