Northeast Victim Service, the Greater Northeast Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce and the Northeast Times are sponsoring a forum featuring the eight candidates for district attorney.
The public is invited to attend.
All eight candidates have agreed to participate. Those attending will be Republican Beth Grossman and Democrats Teresa Carr Deni, Michael Untermeyer, Joe Khan, Jack O’Neill, Rich Negrin, Larry Krasner and Tariq El-Shabazz.
Tom Waring, editor of the Times, will moderate the forum.
Pat Parkinson, chairman of Northeast Victim Services, a nonprofit crime victim advocacy organization, said, “This is a great opportunity to have the DA candidates together to address issues important to the residents of Northeast Philly, and we would like to see our next potential district attorney’s ideas for the Northeast on everything from crime to community courts.
Note: Due to overlapping events, Larry may not be able to be present for the entire time of this event.
