From Black River Today:
FOLA (Friends of Ludlow Auditorium) has announced that it will sponsor a Candidates Forum on Thursday, October 18 at 7 PM at the Ludlow Town Hall Auditorium. The forum will feature candidates for the Windsor County Senate seats in Montpelier as well as the newly-created Rutland-Windsor (RW-2) seat in the House. The RW-2 seat will represent Ludlow, Mt Holly, and Shrewsbury.
The forum will consist of questions addressed to the candidates by the moderator regarding state and regional issues. Questions from the audience will follow.
Of the six candidates seeking the three Windsor County Senate seats, four have agreed to participate in the forum as of the writing of this writing. They are: John Campbell, Dick McCormack, and Alice Nitka, all Democrats, and Dick Tracy, a Republican. One Republican candidate, Jeff Whittemore, will be unable to attend due to business reasons; the other Republican candidate, Paul Gibbs, has not responded to multiple phone calls and emails over the past several months.
