Last Chance: Candidate Debate

The League of Women Voters debate set for Tuesday in Manhasset.

We've seen hundreds of events come and go in the community, but how often does one pass you by that you wish you hadn't missed out on? That's where we come in. Each week Great Neck Patch will post a quick reminder about the events, activities or important tasks whose deadlines have come.

Candidates running for federal and state offices serving parts of the North Shore of Long Island will square off at a debate sponsored by the League of Women Voters on Oct. 23. 

The event begins at 6 p.m. at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation just down the road from Grea Neck in Manhasset.

The night's first debate features the four candidates vying to represent the redrawn U.S. Congressional District 3, including incumbent, Rep. Steve Israel, D-Dix Hills; Republican Stephen A. Labate of Deer Park; Libertarian Michael McDermott of Huntington Station; and Anthony Tolda from the Constitution party. 

At 7 p.m., incumbent New York District 16 Assemblywoman Michelle Schimel, D-Great Neck, will face challenger, Richard Stiek, a Republican from Port Washington.

The final debate begins at 8 p.m. between incumbent NYS District 7 Senator Jack Martins, R- Mineola, and his Democratic opponent Daniel S. Ross of Manhasset. 

The Unitarian Universalist Congregation is located at 48 Shelter Rock Rd. in Manhasset between Northern Boulevard and the Long Island Expressway. Entrance is through white gates on the west side of the road. Small sandwich wraps, along with coffee and cookies, will be available by 5:30 p.m. for those who do not have time to eat before the first 6 p.m. debate, according to event organizers.
