Meet the Candidates...

This Tattler has heard that North Hills community members have planned a "Meet the Candidates Night" on Friday, May 4 from 7 to 9 p.m. at West View Elementary School along Chalfonte Ave.

Most, if not all, of the twelve people running in the primary election for five seats will lay out their respective platforms. Candidates who attend will discuss issues and answer questions from community members.

Of the twelve candidates, three are incumbents including Arlene Bender, Ed Wielgus and Jeff Meyer. Challengers include Robert Barto, Sam DeFrancesco, Paul Frye, Dennis Gsell, Tara Howey, Louis Krummert III, Shea McKinney, Lou Nudi and Lorenz Stocker.

Having events like this are great because it gives candidates another opportunity to discuss the issues facing North Hills School District. It will also give local residents a chance to become familiar with all of the candidates in the primary so they can make an educated decision.

Stay informed and be sure to vote in May.

Working to keep you posted...
