Following is a summary of Barrett’s recent pre-election Candidate Forum held at our library. Sue Ruskin-Mayher representing the Community Center did a great job moderating the event, presenting candidates and questions. Three of the four candidates for Barrett Supervisor (Benjie LaBar, Patti O’Keefe, and Michele Sisak) were present as well as one uncontested candidate for Paradise Supervisor (Gary Conrad), and three of the four candidates for County Commissioner (John Christy, Charlie Garris, and John Moyer.) Sue asked each candidate to briefly introduce themselves including what issues need to be addressed, why they are running, their strengths, and how they envision leading change.
In case you have not heard, there is a pre-election Candidates’ Forum scheduled at the Barrett Paradise Friendly Library this Wednesday, October 21, at 7-8:30 PM in the Weiler Community Room. This is a great opportunity to ask questions and discuss tax and other community issues with the Barrett candidates for Supervisor who include Benjie LaBar, Patti O’Keefe, Bill Pipolo, and Michele Sisak. Sincere thanks to our Library and Community Center for jointly sponsoring this helpful event!
