Tay Valley Township will have its own “Meet the Candidates” event at the Glen Tay Public School on 155 Harper Road on Wednesday September 26, from 7:00 – 9:00 pm. Hosted by the Canadian Federation of University Women (CFUW) Perth & District and with Brian Perkin of Lake 88 as moderator, this is an opportunity for voters to hear from their candidates in person.
All Tay Valley Township candidates for the October 22 election have confirmed they will participate. Candidates for Councillor will be given two minutes each to outline why they are running and why people should vote for them. Candidates for Reeve and Deputy Reeve will be given two minutes each for opening remarks, two minutes to answer three pre-circulated questions and one minute for closing remarks.
People can also submit questions when they arrive. The moderator will pick two for the candidates for Reeve and another two for the candidates for Deputy Reeve. There will be an informal “meet and greet” following the formal part of the event.
CFUW and Lake 88 are pleased to provide this opportunity for Tay Valley Township residents to make a more informed choice on voting day.
