Informed voters are the source of effective government leaders, and it is each citizen’s responsibility to gather as much available knowledge before casting his or her ballot. In an effort to educate members of the community, TRIP (Troy Rehabilitation & Improvement Program) and TNAC (Troy Neighborhoods Action Council) are sponsoring a Meet the Candidates Night to connect voters with those running for Troy Mayoral Office and City Council positions. Taking place on Tuesday, October 4th, 2011 at School 12, 475 1st Street, Troy, candidates will present their platforms and answer questions starting at 6:30pm and running until 9:00pm.
Attendees will hear each candidate’s opinions and solutions to issues facing the City of Troy, and thus be more confident in who to vote for come Election Day, November 8, 2011. Questions about the event should be directed toward the TRIP office at (518) 272-8289.
