Republicans plan ‘Meet the Candidates Night’

LOCK HAVEN – The Clinton County Republican Party will host a Meet the Candidates

Night on Wednesday, May 15, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the GOP Election Center located at 25 E. Main St. in Lock Haven.

Kurt Smith, Clinton County Republican Party Chairman, invites the public to attend, meet and speak with all of the candidates.

“On May 21, in addition to the Primary Elections, a Special Election is also being held to elect a Congressman to complete the remaining term of now retired Tom Marino. Republicans, Democrats, Independents, and voters registered in other parties are eligible to vote in this Special Election,” Smith said.

Republican nominee for the 12th U. S. Congressional District Fred Keller will join all local Clinton County candidates and speak at the event.

Local Republican candidates scheduled to attend and speak include the four candidates running for Clinton County commissioner: Miles Kessinger, Mitch Christensen, Michele Whitney and the incumbent Jeffrey A. Snyder. Voters will choose two candidates in the Primary on May 21.

Candidates for county auditor Brooke Fravel and incumbent Rita O’Brien who seek the two auditor positions on the ballot; Cindy Love who is running for the office of Clinton County Prothonotary; and incumbent Register and Recorder candidate Jennifer L. Hoy, who is running unopposed with no Democrat challenger in the Primary, will all attend and speak.

Former Lock Haven Councilman Richard “Rick” Conklin and Jeff Brinker who are competing for the position of mayor of Lock Haven are both conducting a write-in campaign in the Primary election. Incumbent Lock Haven City Councilman candidate Douglas T. Byerly is also scheduled to attend.

Food, beverage, and dessert will be provided to all attendees. Door prizes will also be awarded.
