Meet the Candidates Night will allow residents to submit questions and socialize

Village by: Chrissy Ruggeri, February 24, 2022

The Northport Chamber of Commerce will host its “Meet the Candidates Night” on Tuesday, March 8, at the American Legion in Northport.

The Northport Chamber of Commerce is hosting its “Meet the Candidates Night” on Tuesday, March 8, from 7-9pm at the American Legion in Northport Village. This will be the only opportunity for residents to hear from the seven candidates running for Northport Village Board in a public question-and-answer forum.

On the night of the forum, printed forms will be available for attendees to submit written questions to the candidates. After their opening statements, each candidate will answer three of the submitted questions alternately. If there’s leftover time, additional questions will be asked before candidates are given the opportunity to make closing remarks.

Candidates can choose to answer any questions that were not addressed during the forum at another time and there will be a chance for socializing at the end of the evening.

All seven candidates will attend the forum, which takes place just one week before election day on March 15. There are four seats open in total: one for mayor, two for the four-year term of trustee, and one for the two-year term of trustee. Trustees Ian Milligan and Tom Kehoe, as well as Mayor Damon McMullen, are not running for reelection.

The American Legion is located at 7 Woodside Ave in Northport. The candidates for mayor and trustee are pictured below.
