23rd PA Legislative District Candidate Forum

Political races within the city of Pittsburgh typically get all their action during the May primaries. But this year, state Rep. Dan Frankel (D-Squirrel Hill) is challenged by Green Party member Jay Ting Walker. They will face off in the general election on November 6. To inform voters on that race, Frankel and Walker are holding a debate at Taylor Allderdice High School Auditorium. The debate is hosted by the League of Women Voters of Greater Pittsburgh. Frankel is a longtime state representative and has championed bills supporting gun reform and LGBTQ rights. Walker is a member of the Democratic Socialists of America and he supports a ban on fracking and free college for middle-class students. Allderdice students will provide questions for the forum.
