Champlain Valley BPW to Host “Meet the Candidates” October 17th  

The Champlain Valley Business & Professional Women’s Club will host their annual “Meet the Candidates” Forum on Tuesday, October 17th at the Plattsburgh City Hall Rotunda. Doors will open at 5pm and the program will begin at 5:30pm.

Champlain Valley BPW is giving candidates for office at the town and county level as well as congressional primary candidates, the opportunity to meet with local constituents, outline their platforms for office and answer questions from the attendees regarding important issues. Representatives from organizations that support and oppose the proposed Constitutional Convention will also be in attendance.

The itinerary will include an introduction and “Q&A” period, but will not have a debate format. The event is open to the public. Any candidate for office in any of the local townships is welcome to attend.

The program will be moderated by Lois Clermont, Editor of the Press-Republican.

Champlain Valley BPW will provide an informative, objective and open forum for candidates to address potential voters.  Champlain Valley BPW will not support or endorse any particular candidate(s).
