Jeremiah Frei-Pearson Gets Stood Up In Queens

I went up to Queens tonight to see Jeremiah Frei-Pearson debate Aravella Simotas (no candidate website that I could locate) for the 36th Assembly District seat. The event was held in order to inform Democracy for New York City members about their choice concerning whether or not to endorse in the race. Ms. Simotas didn't show up though, leaving Jeremiah to own the stage:

From what I saw, Jeremiah would make an excellent addition to the State Assembly (which is in dire need of good progressives). It would have been nice to see what Simotas had to say, but obviously she couldn't be bothered, as she gave DFNYC the run around when trying to organize the event.
