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.

At the top of the ballot is a space to vote ‘Yes' or ‘No' for the upcoming referendum on school taxes. Mario Scavello and others have worked hard to provide this opportunity to vote on eliminating school taxes based on property values. Voting YES would vote to eliminate school taxes based on property values, while voting NO is a vote to keep the current system of property taxation. If approved, school taxes would then need to be funded with alternative taxes.

Vote Patricia O'Keefe

Barrett is a second-class township.

A second-class township usually has three supervisors, elected at large for six-year terms. A referendum may allow a second-class township's board of supervisors to expand to five members. Some townships have home-rule charters, which allow for a mayor/council form of government.
