FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Brooklyn, NY – May 15, 2017 – Today JIG Media announced that they will livestream the Brooklyn District Attorney Candidates Forum, Saturday May 20, 2017, on their NYCPolitics.com digital and social media platforms.
The forum is hosted by State Committeewoman Nikki Lucas (East New York), and The People First Democratic Club.
The six candidates running for Brooklyn District Attorney, Eric Gonzalez, Ama Dwimoh, Anne Swern, Vincent Gentile, Patricia Gatling and Marc Fliedner, are all expected to be present at the forum.
“This is a great opportunity for the voters of Brooklyn to see all six candidates, live, on the same stage”, said Vernon Jones, Sr., CEO of JIG Media. “We created NYCPolitics.com as a way to bring information to the voters, and livestreaming this forum is in line with that mission. Voters, and potential voters consume 85% of their news on digital media these days, so it makes sense for candidates to connect with the voters where they are.”
“Hosting this forum in East New York is great for the community, and all of Brooklyn”, stated Nikki Lucas, Female District Leader of East New York. “The candidates get a chance to directly connect with the people who are at the forum, and the livestream is a great way to reach Brooklynites throughout the entire borough. We are looking forward to bringing similar opportunities and events to the residents of East New York.”
