Biaggi Accepts BronxTalk TV Debate
Alessandra Biaggi, candidate in the Democratic primary for State Senate in District 34, today accepted the opportunity to debate her opponent Jeff Klein on Monday, August 13 on the BronxTalk TV show.
“Public debates are an essential part of giving people the information they need to make informed decisions about who they want representing them,” Biaggi said. “There are major differences between my opponent and me, and the voters deserve to have those differences presented objectively and openly in a debate. I expect the BronxTalk debate to be the first of several.”
BronxTalk is hosting the 30-minute televised debate for the Democratic primary in the 34th Senate District on Monday, August 13th. It will be broadcast on BronxNet (Optimum 67, FiOS 33) for the first time at 9:00 pm that day and repeated many times through Primary Day.
