Minerva to host candidate forum

MINERVA - High school students at Minerva Central School will serve as moderators at a "candidate forum" on Tuesday, Oct. 20 at 7 p.m.

Students of Robin Keleher's senior government class and youth & government club will host the forum in the Minerva Central School cafeteria.

Art teacher Patsy Sullivan will also be supervising the event.

Even after the primary elections, there are still competitive races for town supervisor and councilman seats in the town of Minerva.

The candidates participating in the forum are Sue Corey, David LaBar and Paul Clickner for supervisor as well as Keith Dubay, Doug McCall, Larry Pratt and Eric Klippel for councilman.

Questions posed to the candidates will come from student moderators as well as community attendants.

"The forum will run like a normal debate," said Keleher.

Students will learn about the debate process while greeting candidates and community members as well as screening questions coming form the public.

Community members are welcome to attend and will have the opportunity to present questions to the candidates. To do so, residents are asked to arrive 15 minutes early and submit written questions. For more information, contact Minerva Central School at 251-2000.
