The Hillsborough High School AP Government Class is sponsoring a Township Committee Candidates' Night this evening in the HHS Auditorium from 7 to 8:30 p.m.
Four candidates will be running for two Township Committee seats: Democrats John Redden Sr. and Aldo Martinez and Republicans Gloria McCauley and Doug Tomson.
Only the Democratic candidates will be facing the students and the public at this forum.
The Republican candidates apparently initially said there were scheduling conflicts, then they didn't like the format. The Democratic candidates offered to change to an alternate date to accommodate the Republicans.
The Republican's campaign manager stated that their candidates go into classrooms to meet with students and go door-to-door to answer questions. This is not the same as meeting the adults of the community and your opponents face-to-face.
Please attend this Candidates' Night this evening. Support the students. Educate yourself.
