Candidates to debate in south Bethlehem

Candidates for both the 18th state Senate district and the 133rd state House District are scheduled to appear at a League of Women Voters-sponsored debate Monday night in south Bethlehem.

State Sen. Lisa Boscola, D-Northampton, is seeking her third term. She is opposed by Bonnie Dodge, a Republican from Northampton.

The state House race is open because of the retirement of Rep. T.J. Rooney, D-Lehigh, after seven terms. The candidates in that race are former Northampton County Councilman Joseph F. Brennan, a Democrat from Fountain Hill; Catasauqua Area School Board member Dawn M. Berrigan, a Republican; and Green Party candidate Guy M. Gray of Bethlehem.

The event is scheduled for 7 p.m. in Sayre Hall at the Cathedral Church of the Nativity.
