Although there are few contests on the March Town Meeting Day ballots in Charlotte and Shelburne, both communities will host candidate forums Feb. 20 for voters.
• In Charlotte, the Grange is organizing a Candidate’s Night forum at 7 p.m.
at the Charlotte Senior Center.
• In Shelburne, the three main political party committees – Democrats, Progressives and Republicans – are organizing an event also for Feb. 20 at 7 p.m. at the town offices. The Shelburne News is a co-sponsor.
Organizers say they will invite all candidates on the March 6 ballot. There is only one race for a two-year seat on the Shelburne selectboard now held by Jaime Heins. He is seeking election to the seat to which he was appointed in November. Chris Boyd also is a contender in that race.
Other Shelburne candidates for selectboard – incumbent Jerry Storey and Mary Kehoe – are running unopposed for a two-year term and three-year term respectively. Barbra Marden is running unopposed for a seat on the Champlain Valley School District board of directors.
Tom Little will moderate the Shelburne forum.
