Collaborative packs the house for Candidates Forum

The Chelsea Collaborative held a forum for those candidates facing a primary election on September 22nd. The two featured races were the At-Large and District 5 City Council seats. Two District 5 challengers: Henry Wilson and Judith Garcia participated while incumbent Joe Perlatonda did not.  For the At-Large race neither of the two incumbents, Calvin Brown and Leo Robinson, participated.  Challengers Roy Avellaneda, John Cadiz, Todd Taylor, Damali Vidot and Deborah Washington participate.  The candidates field approximately one dozen questions from rat infestation to over-development and gentrification to workers rights and transgender rights.  The dialogue was lively and informative.  The forum as recorded on Chelsea Community Cable.
