A reminder to all our readers that a “meet the candidates” forum to publicly present the four candidates running for town council next month and to hear some of their views will be held at the Knights of Columbus hall on High Street on Tuesday, October 15 from 6p.m. to 7:30p.m. All local voters are encouraged to attend.
Republican incumbents Tracy Luton and Mary Fontana are being challenged this November by Democrats Dean Lefebvre and Daniel “Boonie” Carmichael. The top two vote-getters will sit at the town board table as of January 1 and serve a four-year term. No other candidates for town office- town clerk, highway superintendent and town justice- are opposed this year.
The event will be hosted by the Tupper Lake Free Press and Stuart Amell's new Property Rights group. Free Press Publisher Dan McClelland will serve as moderator.
The event will feature opening and closing statements by each of the candidates as well as their views on three questions on current town topics. There will be no questions taken from the audience, due to time limits.
