In Case You Missed It: Meet the Candidates Forum (10/23/17)

With the November 7th elections rapidly approaching, the Friendly Community Center hosted an informative “Meet the Candidates” Forum (Oct. 23rd) to help residents familiarize themselves with the candidates for Supervisor and their views. Voters will select two of the four candidates who are Loree Guthrie, Grant Hilfiger, Patti O’Keefe and Michele Sistak. The forum was moderated by Sue Ruskin-Mayer and attended by approximately 50 residents. Each candidate made introductory comments, a concluding summary, and answered questions. We have tried to faithfully capture the substance of each candidate’s responses, with some sentences being abbreviated to speed your reading.

These notes are meant to help residents who could not attend the meeting and are not meant to be a complete transcript of the discussion which lasted 1 1/2 hours. We try to be as faithful to all comments as possible.

We thank all the impressive candidates for their dedication and our supportive moderator and community center! Election day is November 7th, a week from Tuesday, and hope you enjoy your Autumn in Barrett! Please email us if you would like to be deleted from this email.

Respectfully,
Ethel and Tom Huff
