Castleton voters will face early voting choices this year at a candidates forum at 7 p.m. Feb. 13 in the Old Chapel on Seminary Street.
Three seats of the five-member Select Board are up for grabs this year. Incumbent Patricia Graziano opposes Patrick Eagan and John Hale for a three-year position. James Leamy and Edward O’Shea both face two challengers, Thomas Kearns and Wenger Rehlen, for their two one-year seats.
The candidates are all invited to participate in the forum, which will be moderated by Nick Thornblade. The Old Chapel is accessible by wheelchair and located near the Castleton State College entrance.MORE IN This Just In
