Meet the Republican Candidates Night for County Commissioner in Union, Snyder, and Northumberland counties.

Thirteen candidates are invited to our Forum:

Union County: Preston Boop, John Mathias, Jeff Reber, and Billy Allred.

Northumberland County: Sam Schiccatano, Slade Shreck, Tom Webb, and Joe Klebon.

On the Republican ticket, you will be asked to vote for TWO candidates in your County.

A reminder that due to our one and one-half hour program featuring thirteen candidates, we will not have
extensive time to delve deeply into issues. However, this will be an excellent opportunity to see your candidates
in person, responding to questions and then, if you choose, meet with them afterward on specific issues important to you.

We also believe it is instructive to hear how the three counties compare and differ on a number of local issues.

As always our meeting is free and open to the public. We meet 7pm to 8:30pm, Monday, April 8th, at the Best Western Meeting Rooms, next door to Country Cupboard, Rt. 15 North, Lewisburg. Entrance is in the rear of
