Join us to meet the candidates for Council for Athol and South Marysburgh on October 13 at Milford Town Hall from 7 pm to 9 pm.
All the candidates for our two South Shore wards will be available to explain their platforms and answer your questions. Each candidate will have the opportunity to explain their reasons for running to be your Councillor. In addition, South Shore Joint Initiative has prepared three questions pertinent to our concerns. Written and oral questions will be taken from the audience.
We are thrilled that Judy Kent and Rosemary Kent have agreed to moderate the meeting. Judy Kent has extensive facilitating and moderating experience both here in Canada and internationally. As a retired teacher her sister Rosemary, is the perfect person to keep the meeting on time and in order.
