The Chronicle-Express is sponsoring a Meet the Candidates Forum for the eight candidates running for trustee positions in the village of Penn Yan.

The event will be held in the Penn Yan Middle School Auditorium Tuesday, March 4 from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.

This forum, which will be moderated by representatives from the League of Women Voters, will give Penn Yan voters an opportunity to learn more about each of the candidates before the March 18 village election.

The candidates who have been invited to participate are incumbents Michael Christensen, Nancy Taylor, Robert Church and Michael D'Abbracci and challengers Richard Stewart, Ken Kamholtz, Michael Carmel Jr. and Matthew Mitchell.

During the forum, the candidates will introduce themselves before a series of questions submitted by members of the audience are presented to individual candidates. If time permits, there will be an opportunity for the public to have individual conversations with the candidates as well.

Anyone with questions about the forum is encouraged to contact The Chronicle-Express at 315-536-4422 or
