BATAVIA – A fourth candidate seeking the Democratic Party line for attorney general will be at a forum this evening at Genesee Community College.

Last week it looked like Letitia James wouldn’t be able to make the forum due to scheduling issues. But she is now planning to be at the forum hosted by the Democratic Rural Conference of New York State.

The forum also includes Leecia Eve, Sean Patrick Maloney and Zephyr Teachout.

“We’re very glad to be able to create this opportunity for our membership to hear from these candidates,” said DRC Chairwoman Irene Stein. “It would be difficult for those running for Attorney General to visit each of our counties in this truncated campaign. This allows them to speak to rural Democrats and their concerns in a very direct way.”

Candidates will be able to make introductory statements, answer questions from DRC Board members about rural issues, and take questions from the audience.

The DRC represents Democrats from New York counties with populations less than 250,000. Democrats from 47 of the 62 counties in the state belong to the organization, which has been active in New York Democratic politics for over 20 years.

The forum will be at GCC’s Conable Technology Building, Room T-102, 1 College Road in Batavia.
