House Candidates Powell and Towns Taking Questions on WNYC Today

This year's election coverage at Streetsblog is mostly focused on the primary races where seats in the state legislature are up for grabs, but we've also got some competitive congressional contests where the Democratic nomination is at stake. One of them is the 10th congressional district in Brooklyn, where 13-term incumbent Ed Towns faces a challenge from Kevin Powell, in an intense rematch of two candidates who squared off in 2008.

Powell and Towns will be appearing on the Brian Lehrer show this morning and fielding questions from listeners. The district -- which includes Fort Greene, Clinton Hill, Bed Stuy, East New York and Canarsie -- depends on subways and buses, so Streetsbloggers may want to call up and ask the candidates how they plan to stand up for transit in the House of Representatives.

The candidates are slated to appear after 11:00 a.m. today -- 93.9 on the FM dial.
