The Murphys Community Club, in conjunction with the Murphys Business Association, is organizing a Meet the Candidates event to be held Sunday, September 28, 3 to 5 p.m. in the town’s idyllic community park.
Invitations have been extended to sixteen men and women whose names will be on the November 4 general election ballots received by voters in the greater Murphys area. Each candidate will be allowed to set up a table and a couple of chairs, display their signs and other printed materials, and be available to chat, one-on-one, with those in attendance.
“We think this is a great way for the residents of our area, in a stress free environment, to really get to know the people who want our votes,” say MCC President Sue Friedman. “There have been forums and other public gatherings, and the candidates have been attending events and knocking on doors, but here is a chance to interact informally with all the candidates in one place, at one time.”
The candidates expected to attend are those running for County Supervisor - District 3, Superior Court Judge - Departments 1 and 2, Calaveras Community Water District Board Member - Division 3, and the Vallecito Union School Board.
There will be no speeches or formal presentations.
Murphys Community Park is located on Algiers St. in historic downtown Murphys. Membership in the Murphys Community Club is open to everyone and contributions are tax deductible. For further information log onto VisitMurphys.com or call 728-8183.
