PTA Sponsors Candidate’s Forum

PTA Sponsors Candidate’s Forum

The Delaware PTA is sponsoring a Candidate’s Forum on April 25, 2017 at 6:30 p.m. in the auditorium at Conrad Schools of Science, 201 Jackson Avenue, Wilmington.

The election is for District C on the seven-member Board of Education, the seat currently held by Kenneth Rivera. Mr. Rivera did not file to run for a second, five-year term. Candidates will be introduced and asked several questions by a moderator. There will also be time for questions from the audience.

Candidates for the seat include Henry Clampitt, Thomas Pappenhagen, and Ashley Sabo. Candidates must reside in the election district in order to run, but the election is districtwide and all residents 18 years or older, and US citizens are eligible to vote.  To vote, residents must have identification. Residents can vote at any of the 16 Red Clay schools to be used as polling places, or the Hilltop Lutheran Neighborhood Center in Wilmington.
