Dear Mr. Lenihan:

In view of your refusal to endorse City Court Judge Robert Russell after he was selected by Governor David Patterson as interim Supreme Court Justice of the 8th Judicial District, we are calling a Public Forum.

It is our hope that you would attend so you can clarify your decision and position before members of the black community. There will be a panel made up of mostly members of the local Black Press and moderated by Dr. Henry Taylor. The forum will be held at Jordan Grove Missionary Baptist Church, 1264 Kensington Avenue at 5 p.m. on August 17, 2009.

Judge Russell is believed to be the latest of what is seen as your snubs against black leaders and the black community. Rarely do we make an occasion to allow a principle such as yourself to give his side of the issue and explain his position. A quick response to this invitation would be appreciated along with your attendance.

Very truly yours,

Chris Stevenson
