2019 Candidate Forum

We are excited to be hosting another candidate forum this year to include the following town representatives:

Susan Hunter – Tai Huynh – Amy Ryan – Renuka Soll – Nancy Oates – Jessica Anderson

Michael Parker – Joshua Levenson and Mayor Pam Hemminger!

Moderated by Gregg Gerdau, this is our kick-off event for the election season and will focus on questions of interest to the downtown.

The Town Council and Mayoral challengers and incumbents will have two minutes to introduce themselves, followed by a question from the moderator and a follow up question from the audience.

This month’s gathering of the Friends will take place at The Franklin Hotel. A thank you goes out to the new management for letting us continue to meet in their beautiful space!

Coffee and conversation begin at 9:30, with our presenter beginning promptly at 10 a.m. Meetings are free and open to the public.
