This was originally posted on the East Side Neighbors site. The East Side Neighbors are coordinating this session and have invited a few people from the different neighborhoods in Carlisle to present questions to the candidates. The West Side Neighbors will be represented as well and we hope people will come out to see the discussion.
Roger Spitz sends word that it’s on: the candidates for Carlisle Borough Council will visit our fair neighborhood for a Candidates’ Forum Wednesday October 12, 7:00 p.m. sharp, at the Alliance Church, 217 E. North St. This event is sponsored by East Side Neighbors Association. The public is cordially invited to come and meet and talk with the candidates. It’s democracy in action, folks, person to person. I hope you can make it, and tell your friends about this great opportunity to get your voice heard on issues important to you in local governance, and also hear the perspectives of the many fine candidates on the ballot this year. Whether it’s the budget, the rental responsibility ordinance, the road diet, policing, economic development, or any other issue on year mind, come and hear, and be heard.
There are six candidates vying for four seats on Carlisle borough council.
Donald Grell and Dawn Flower have cross-filed and are running on both the Republican and Democratic tickets. Robin Guido and Matthew Madden are running on the Republican ticket. Deb Fulham-Winston and Elizabeth Pagano are running on the Democratic ticket.
