MOUNT VERNON — A Meet the Candidate night will be held Tuesday, Oct. 1, at 6:30 p.m. in the Mount Vernon High School theater. The event is sponsored by OAPSE (Classified Staff Union) and MVEA (Teachers Union).
Liz Walls will present opening remarks and set the ground rules for the candidates to follow. Each candidate will receive a period of 2 1/2 minutes for opening remarks, two minutes to reply to each question and two minutes for closing remarks.
Questions will be asked by Patti Dice.
All candidates who intend to be on the ballot this fall have been contacted and encouraged to participate. Mary Rugola-Dye is the only candidate to confirm participation. The hope is that all of the candidates will participate so that local voters will be able to cast their vote for the best candidates.
The event sponsors invite everyone who resides in the Mount Vernon City School District to attend so that they can be informed and make their own decision which candidates will be the best candidates for area children and schools.
