Latinos convene Community for Candidates’ and Issues Night

Latino political leaders are offering voters an opportunity to learn who the candidates are in the national and local races as well as the issues on the upcoming ballot in Cleveland.

TheCandidates’and Issues Night is aimed at making sure the voices of Latino voters are heard prior to the election on November 6th.Candidatesare expected to explain to at least 400 Latino leaders and citizens how they plan to serve the needs of the growing Latino population in Northeast Ohio and across the country.

Latino organizers say this is an important event as the Latino voting block will have a big influence nationally and locally. They believe that not only is Ohio a critical state for this election, but candidates are paying particular attention to the Latino community and seeking their vote.

“Our numbers are growing and we will be the balance of power in this election and in every election in the foreseeable future. We want to help prepare our community to make informed decisions at the polls.” said José Feliciano, Chairman of the Hispanic Roundtable.

Since the last general election in 2008 there has been an increase of more than 40 percent in the total population of Latinos in our region. Nationally, Latinos represent 16.9 percent or 50.5 million of the total population.

The event will serve as an educational forum for Latino voters to learn more about local, county, and statewide issues. They will be able to ask questions and to get answers on exactly where the candidates stand on issues ranging from the economy and immigration, to what candidates will do to improve conditions for Latino families.

The Hispanic Roundtable and its partners have invited candidates in the presidential and local races to address the community about what to expect if they are elected on November 6th.

The Candidates and Issues Night is Thursday, October 18, 2012 at La Sagrada Familia Church located at 7719 Detroit Avenue in Cleveland from 5:30-7:30pm.

The Hispanic Roundtable is a not for profit organization whose mission is to act as a catalyst to empower the Hispanic Community to become full partners in economic, education, political, civic and social life of Greater Cleveland.

The event is free and open to the public. For more information on this event, call (216) 861-7827.
