The Tri-City Public Library is hosting "Meet the Candidates Night," an informal gathering to give local voters and residents a chance to meet local candidates running for local offices in the April 4, 2017 consolidated election. Invited candidates include those running for local village trustees, mayors and presidents, Tri-City CUSD #1 school board candidates, and Tri-City Library board of trustees. The Tri-City Public Library District includes the villages of Buffalo, Dawson and Mechanicsburg.
Voter turnout for these local elections are often much lower than state and national elections. However, these individuals are running to represent their communities in agencies that directly affect the lives of their residents, and are responsible for policies and funding that supports a wide range of local activities. This is a good chance to put names and faces of your neighbors together before election day.
