Don Padou '11 is organizing a high-profile debate this Saturday at Catholic University for the candidates looking to replace D.C. Councilmember Harry Thomas Jr. (D-Ward 5), who resigned last month before pleading guilty to felony theft charges. Shelly Gardner, another '11 alum, is one of the candidates looking to replace Harry Thomas Jr. in the special election.

Though there are more then 12 candidates looking to replace Harry Thomas Jr., only 5 of the candidates will appear at the debate. In The Washington Post Padou said a smaller, more lively event is in the ward’s best interest: "We decided we wanted a debate, not a forum, and a debate only works if you limit the number of candidates.”

The debate is being sponsored by Brookland Heartbeat, a community newsletter, and the D.C. chapter of the League of Women Voters. WTOP radio's Mark Segraves will be moderating.
