Velázquez, Marmorato to square off in City Island ahead of hotly contested Council District 13 vote

In what’s been dubbed one of the most interesting New York City races this campaign cycle, East Bronx City Council candidates Marjorie Velázquez, the incumbent, and challenger Kristy Marmorato are preparing for a week of head-to-head debates before Election Day. And it starts tonight. 

The pair is set to attend the City Island Civic Association’s candidate forum in the Community Center tonight at 7:30 p.m., where they’ll be able to give short speeches about their platforms and take audience questions. Later this month, the two are also scheduled to debate on BronxNet, which will air on Oct. 31 (Halloween) at 9 p.m. on Optimum 67 and Fios 2133.
