Plattsburgh, NY – 04/18/2017 – On May 8 at 6:30 PM, Mountain Lake PBS will tape and livestream a community forum with Congresswoman Elise Stefanik. The discussion will be moderated by Thom Hallock, producer and host of Mountain Lake Journal.
The forum will be devoted entirely to questions and comments, selected at random, by studio attendees and community members online. As seating is limited to 100 attendees in the Mountain Lake PBS studio, those who wish to attend the taping are asked to sign-up for a lottery to receive tickets online, or by calling 518-324-0155. Registration for the lottery will remain until Monday, May 1 at 10 AM. Those selected will be notified by phone and/or email on May 1.
The taping of this forum will stream live online at mountainlake.org/stefanik. Those unable to attend the in-studio audience are invited to join the conversation with questions and comments while watching the live stream of the taping.
This forum will air on Mountain Lake PBS on Tuesday, May 9 at 9 PM.
*Note to media: Due to the limited seating in the studio, community members will be given priority for seats. If there is no additional space in the studio, Mountain Lake PBS will set up a conference room with a closed-circuit monitor for any media that would like to attend. If you would like to request dubs of the taping, please inform us in advance by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Frequently Asked Questions
[accordion clicktoclose=true tag=h4]
[accordion-item title=”Where and when is the event? How can I watch?”]
The studio taping will take place at Mountain Lake PBS, 1 Sesame St in Plattsburgh NY at 6:30 PM on Monday, May 8.
The taping will be streamed live online on this page, and on facebook.
The event will also be broadcast on Mountain Lake PBS on Tuesday, May 9 at 9 PM.
[accordion-item title=”Why the 100 person seat limit?”]
We completely understand the desire for a large scale Town Hall. Because we are such a small organization, it’s not feasible for us pull off a broadcast taping like this outside the studio, which is why we’re hosting this as a Community Forum. We hope because this will be streamed live online and broadcast on TV provides another kind of access to those who might not be able to attend from all across the district.We are doing our best to make this process as fair and as transparent as we can possibly can.
[accordion-item title=”How will the seat lottery be conducted?”]
Registration for the seat lottery will remain open until Monday, May 1st at 10 AM. Any resident of NY 21st Congressional District is invited to register, either by phone at 518-324-0155, or the online form.
On Monday, May 1st, Mountain Lake PBS staff will add all registrants to a drawing and draw the names at random, with no screening of the list.
Those who receive seats will be notified by phone and/or email on May 1st. Those who did not receive a seat will not be contacted.
[accordion-item title=”Will attendees or questions be screened?”]
No. Neither questions or attendees will be screened at all.
[accordion-item title=”How will questions be chosen and who will ask them?”]
