Candidate Forum


Dobisky Center
100 Riverside Ave
United States

The Friends of Ogdensburg Public Library is hosting a public forum for the candidates seeking the positions of mayor and city councilor. This evening is so that members of our community can meet with the all the candidates seeking public office.
The forum is set for October 10, 2019 from 6:00 - 8:00 pm at the Dobisky Center, 100 Riverside Ave., and all members of the Ogdensburg Community are invited to attend.
Candidates will be given the opportunity to speak for two minutes. We are asking candidates to limit their subject matter to their reasons for running for office and what their goals are if elected to office.
The agenda for the evening is as follows:

A. Welcome the audience
B. Introduce the moderator
C. Introduce the candidates and read the guidelines, by moderator
D. 2-minute presentation by each candidate
E. Question and answer period from the audience (if time permits).
F. 90-second wrap-up by each candidate.

This will be a two-hour program and we will have timekeepers. We look forward to meeting the candidates on October 10, 2019. For more information, please contact Penny Kerfien, Executive Director, Ogdensburg Public Library at 315-393-4325 or via email at:
