(Sept. 28, 2012) The Ocean City AARP Chapter 1917 will host a candidates’ forum on Tuesday, Oct. 16, at the Ocean City Elks Lodge, to allow residents the chance to meet and hear from candidates for the upcoming City Council and mayoral elections.
The Ocean City Elks Lodge is located at 13708 Sinepuxent Ave. Doors will open at 4 p.m., and the two-hour forum will begin at 5 p.m. Dr. Harry Basehart, Professor Emeritus of political science and co-founder of Salisbury University’s Institute for Public Affairs and Civic Engagement, will moderate.
“This is a great opportunity to learn about the candidates that will be representing the citizens of Ocean City. Not all issues are senior issues, but all decisions affect seniors,”, said Chris Norris, president of AARP Chapter 1917.
Candidates for mayor and the City Council seats will be in attendance. City elections will be held in conjunction with the national elections on Nov. 6. Those in attendance are encouraged to submit their own questions for the candidates.
This forum is open to all voters registered for the Ocean City elections. For additional information, call 410- 250-4533.
