The Cooperative Community Organization, a group that says it fights for co-op shareholders’ rights in New York, will be holding a debate between New York City Council candidates for the 47th and 48th districts, this Sunday, August 11, 4:00 p.m. at 94 Dooley Street between East 22nd Street and East 23rd Street. The debate will cover issues dealing exclusively with cooperative housing.

The candidates who have confirmed their participation as of this writing are John Lisyanskiy of District 47 and Chaim Deutsch, Ari Kagan and Theresa Scavo of District 48. The group asks that you bring every shareholder you know and be prepared to ask the candidates all of your co-op questions.
