PublicMind to Hold Forum for All Three New Jersey Republican U.S. Senate Candidates:
Pennachio, Sabrin, Zimmer Committed to Attend
MADISON, NJ (April 17, 2008) PublicMind, Fairleigh Dickinson University's independent survey research center, and the University Library will host its fifth event in the "Politics on the PublicMind" series on Tuesday April 22, 2008, at 6:00 p.m. at the College at Florham library.
The April 22 event will be a give and take forum for candidates running for the Republican nomination for United States Senate: state senator Joe Pennacchio, Dr. Murray Sabrin, and former Congressman Dick Zimmer.
The forum will give the candidates time to discuss the most pressing issues they want to address as US Senators and answer questions from the audience. It will be moderated by Paul Mulshine, the nationally respected conservative columnist for The Star-Ledger.
A resident of Montville, Pennacchio (R-26th District) joined the State Senate in January, 2008 and served as a member of the General Assembly from 2001-2008. According to Pennacchio's Web site, his decision to run for the United States Senate is not based on wanting to change things, but rather "to make things better…to offer promise and vision for a better tomorrow."
Dr. Sabrin, a resident of Fort Lee, New Jersey, is a professor of finance in the Anisfield School of Business, and Executive Director of the Center for Business and Public Policy at Ramapo College of New Jersey. Running on a platform to "legalize freedom," Dr. Sabrin is an advocate of "limited government and individual liberty."
On Friday, April 11th after Unanue withdrew from the race, former Congressman Dick Zimmer of Hunterdon County announced that he would replace Unanue. Zimmer served as a State Assemblyman from 1982 to1987, a member of the State Senante from 1987 to 1991, and a Congressman for New Jersey’s 12th district from 1991 to 1997. This free forum, "Candidate Forum: Republican Candidates for the U.S. Senate," is an RSVP only event.
