Bergen Indivisible For Democracy Hosts "Meet and Greet"
with Valerie Vainieri Huttle and Gordon Johnson
April 28th, 7:00 PM
Seeking to provide our community with the opportunity to hear from the candidates running for State Senate and Assembly in District 37 on June 8, BID was pleased to sponsor a "Meet and Greet" with Valerie Vainieri Huttle and her running mates Gervonn Romney Rice and Lauren Kohn Dayton, as well as Gordon Johnson and his "team" Ellen J Park and Shama H. Haider. The well-attended meeting held via Zoom gave attendees the chance to hear the candidates speak directly about why they're running, what issues they are most passionate about, the various legislation they have sponsored over the years, what goals they hope to achieve if elected and how they plan to win. The event was presented as an open forum, not as a debate, allowing each team to present their platforms in separate time frames, where they could address priority issues and the solutions they are proposing in clear, accessible terms. The presentation was followed with an open Q&A discussion that allowed attendees to come away with a deeper understanding of the candidates and their platforms for the upcoming election.
