OCEAN CITY — The Ocean City AARP Chapter 1917 is hosting a "Candidates Forum" to allow residents the chance to meet and hear from candidates for the upcoming Mayor and Council election.
It will be held Tuesday, Oct. 16, from 5-7 p.m. with doors opening at 4 p.m. at the Ocean City Elks Lodge, 13708 Sinepuxent Ave.
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 OC AARP 1917 President Chris Norris.
Candidates for mayor and the 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.
