LivingADK to host Town of Webb “Meet the Candidate” Night at View, Sept. 13

Old Forge, NY – LivingADK will again be hosting a Town of Webb Meet the Candidate Night on Wednesday, September 13, 2023 from 7 to 9 p.m.. at View Arts Center located at 3273 State Route 28 in Old Forge, NY. This event is created for the benefit of our electorate and is primarily for the contested seats within the Town of Webb although uncontested candidates are encouraged to participate. This evening is a more formal structure as compared to the Old Forge Library’s Voter Registration Day, Meet & Eat event scheduled for September 19 where the library will encourage residents to mingle and speak with the candidates in a relaxed setting.

The community is fortunate to have two very different opportunities to spend time getting to know our candidates. To start our September 13 evening off, each candidate will provide a little information about themselves and what they hope to accomplish for the community if elected or re-elected. The question and answer format will be a little different this year. LivingADK will still present questions previously submitted by community residents to board, town or county government positions and the candidate(s) will each have a chance to respond.


Additionally, the public will be presented with paper & pencil at the door and asked to place their questions in a basket, so bring your questions with you. The presented questions will be pulled and read by the moderator and any candidate(s) will have 3 minutes to reply. Any question presented should be directed toward a specific board, town or county government office position and not specific candidates running to avoid any sense of bias toward a candidate.


Our goal is to present an event where questions asked are topics aimed at improving the overall health of the Town of Webb and allows candidates to express how they feel about issues important to them. This event will be recorded and posted on LivingADK’s Facebook page and website within a few days after the event to benefit those electorate members that could not attend in person. Do
you know that in 2021, the Candidate Night video recording received 941 views?


Light refreshments will be provided by LivingADK, so please come around 6:30 p.m. to mingle with your neighbors and participate in the electoral process. We encourage community members
to either drop off or email their questions for the candidates between now and September 8 to the LivingADK office. Our physical address is 108 Codling Street, Old Forge, NY, our mailing
address is PO Box 642, Old Forge, NY 13420 and our email address is info@livingadk.org .


Please call 315.369.3353 with any questions.
