A reader forwarded me this invitation for Comptroller Tom DiNapoli’s fundraiser Oct. 17 that promises a “lively panel discussion” on the 2012 presidential election.

Tickets to the event start at $100 per person.

President Obama and his Republican opponent Mitt Romney will be squaring off in a debate at Hofstra University a day earlier.

From the fundraising email:

Last week, I joined Democrats from across the country at the national convention in Charlotte to rally around President Obama and his message of shared opportunity, shared responsibility and shared prosperity. Iā€™ve returned to New York feeling enthusiastic about the vision the president presented to the nation and energized for the hard work leading up to election day.
