EVENT: Meet the Candidates for U.S. Congress TX-06

Tarrant County Democratic Party is hosting a virtual forum for voters to meet the Democratic candidates on the ballot for the upcoming special election being held on May 1, 2021.

The forum is on March 16, 2021 from 7:00 p.m. to 8:15 p.m. and the Zoom link is provided upon registration.

All 10 Democratic candidates that filed with the Texas Secretary of State’s office have been invited. So far, 8 have confirmed their attendance: Lydia Bean, Daryl J. Eddings Sr., Matt Hinterlong, Shawn Lassiter, Patrick Moses, Jana Lynne Sanchez, Brian K. Stephenson, and Chris Suprun.

The event will be held on Zoom and live-streamed on Facebook (as well as uploaded to YouTube after the event concludes). Each candidate will have a 2-3 minute introduction (depending on the number of candidates who confirm attendance). All candidates will answer the same 1-2 question(s) and will conclude with a 2-3 minute closing statement. Chairwoman Deborah Peoples will be hosting. Order of intros, questions, and closing thoughts will be drawn randomly before the event. 

We invite members of the press to join the candidates at 6:30 p.m. to have their own Q&A before the event starts. Email [email protected] for more information.

Texas’s 6th Congressional District represents all of Navarro and Ellis Counties, and the southeastern part of Tarrant in the U.S. House of Representatives.
