‘Meet The Candidates Night’ coming on Tuesday

By Staff | Feb 12, 2009

All island voters are encouraged to attend a special “Meet The Candidates Night,” on Tuesday, Feb. 17 at the Sanibel Community House, located at 2173 Periwinkle Way. The program will begin at 7 p.m.

The Committee of the Islands (COTI), who is sponsoring the event, has invited all five candidates who are running for the three seats available on the Sanibel City Council – David Bath, Dr. David Berger, Mick Denham, Marty Harrity and Kevin Ruane – to attend the informal gathering.

During the evening program, the candidates will each have an opportunity to discuss their backgrounds and individual platforms. They will also answer questions posed by a moderator as well as submitted by members of the audience.

According to event organizers, the gathering is intended to allow voters an opportunity to get to know the candidates better so that they will be able to make a more informed choice come election day, on Tuesday, March 3.

Sparkling water, wine and coffee will be served, along with assorted sweets and dessert refreshments. There is no cost to attend and all islanders are welcome.
