LWVNC to hold Candidates' Night Monday, October 29th

The League of Women VotersŪ of New Castle (LWVNC) invites the community to Candidates' Night on Monday, October 29, 2018 at 7:00 p.m. at New Castle Town Hall, 200 South Greeley Avenue, Chappaqua, New York. Candidates for NY State Assembly, District 93, Assemblyman David Buchwald (Incumbent, D) and Mr. John Nuculovic (Rep, Con) have accepted our invitation.

Candidates for US Congressional District 17 (Congresswoman Nita Lowey/Joseph Ciardullo) were invited, but at this time only Mr. Ciardullo has committed to appear. Due to the League of Women Voter's "Empty Chair" policy, a minimum of two candidates running against one another must be present to hold a candidate forum. Candidates for NYS Senate District 40 (Senator Terrence Murphy/Peter Harckham), were offered a few possible dates for a candidate forum but were unable to find a mutually convenient date.

"It is most unfortunate that the other candidates are not participating," said Suzanne Kavic, President of the LWVNC, "since our Candidates' Night provides the voters a wonderful opportunity to hear about the issues most important to them." The October 29th LWVNC Candidates' Night is free and open to the public. The evening's proceedings will be recorded and streamed live by New Castle Community Media Center, as well as for later rebroadcast.

The LWVNC will provide coffee and light refreshments. For additional information, please contact the New Castle League at lwvnewcastle@gmail.com or Mary Kirsch at 914-409-2989. For up-to-date information on the candidates and your polling places, go to http://www.Vote411.org.

Senator Murphy and Mr. Harckham are participating in a Candidates' Night on October 22nd at 6:30 p.m. at the Mahopac Library, hosted by the League of Women VotersŪ of Putnam County. All are welcome. The LWVNC will make every effort to obtain a recording of that event and post it on the New Castle League's website.
