We’ll be holding an event in the Town of Guilderland this year on Monday, Oct. 28, from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Guilderland Public Library, 2228 Western Ave., Guilderland. Candidates running for Town Board and for town supervisor have been invited to this event.
A busier event will take place in the Town of Bethlehem on Tuesday, Oct. 22, from 6 to 9 p.m. at Bethlehem Town Hall, 445 Delaware Ave., Delmar. The event will start with statements from candidates for town clerk and town justice, then move on to a forum with the candidates for highway superintendent in which the audience may provide written questions. Candidates for Town Board have been invited to participate in a forum immediately following, and the event will wrap up with a debate between the candidates for town supervisor.
All these events are open to the public and, with the exception of the Colonie breakfast, are free to attend. We merely ask that members of the audience refrain from politicking for their candidates until after the event is concluded and come equipped with an open mind and preferably a few questions to ask. If you can’t make an event, you’ll be able to find coverage in the following issue of The Spotlight.
Whether you come out to hear from the candidates or not, you’ll be able to read up on their positions through the League of Women Voters’ Vote411 questionnaires at www.vote411.org. Local candidates for office have been invited to upload their answers to the league’s questions, and their answers should be available in the coming days on the website.
As always, thank you for reading The Spotlight. We’ll do our best to make sure it pays off this and every election season.
