People must be a registered voter of the village of Port Henry to be eligible to vote in the village election. The deadline to register with the Essex County Board of Elections to be eligible to vote in the March 15 village elections has passed. For further information, to register, or to check registration status, people should call 873-3474.
The candidate forum was sponsored by the pH7 committee, which was formed last year after village residents rejected a dissolution measure.
"The pH7 committee is a group of concerned citizens who are working for the betterment of Port Henry," Viestenz said. "It was formed after the dissolution of the village failed. The people who formed the committee felt that since the citizenry had voted to keep the village, that we should work towards preserving and improving the village."
Generating interest in village elections is a goal of the pH7 committee.
