‘Meet the Candidates Night’ for Sugar Grove elections

By on February 17, 2013

The Sugar Grove Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the Elburn Herald invite the community to the “Meet the Candidates Night” on Tuesday, March 12 at the Sugar Grove Community House, 141 Main Street, Sugar Grove. Doors will open at 6 p.m. and the event will begin at 6:30 p.m. Individuals seeking office with the Village of Sugar Grove, the Township of Sugar Grove, the Sugar Grove Public Library, the Kaneland School Board, the Sugar Grove Fire District, the Sugar Grove Park District, and the Waubonsee Community College Board of Trustees will all be invited to attend the event and will have a chance to introduce themselves. Candidates for the Village President, the Village Board, and the Township Supervisor races will also participate in a special Q & A time. Before the event, community members will be able to submit questions for the candidates that might be used during the Q & A, with the understanding that time for questions will be limited.

Admission to the event is free. Community members will have an opportunity after the event to meet and speak with candidates. Candidates will be allowed to display and distribute political materials.

This event is being held prior to early voting so that everyone will have the opportunity to hear from candidates before casting ballots. The early voting runs March 25 through April 6, with April 9 being Election Day.

The Sugar Grove Chamber of Commerce and Industry has at its focus the Sugar Grove business community. With the interests of its members and community in mind, the Chamber has hosted the “Meet the Candidates Night” for over 20 years, and is pleased to welcome the Elburn Herald as a co-sponsor this year.

For more information on this event, please contact Shari at (630) 466-7895.

    Once again, an early event that makes it difficult for many of us to attend.
