Seabrook Town Notebook: Live broadcast planned for Candidates Night

Candidates Night will be held at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 20, in the selectmen's meeting room on the second floor of Town Hall. The program will also be broadcast live on Seabrook's cable access Channel 22.

All candidates running for office on the town and Seabrook and Winnacunnet school district levels are invited to attend, according to the event's organizer, Owen Latham. As in years past, former Town Clerk Virginia Small and Latham will be the moderators and present the same three questions to all candidates.

This method ensures all candidates receive the same exposure prior to the election, which takes place on Tuesday, March 11.

Each candidate will have time for a brief statement answering why he or she wishes to serve in the office he or she is seeking, his or her qualifications and how Seabrook will benefit by his or her election.

The telephone number and e-mail address of each candidate are requested so residents can contact them before March 11 with questions.

Because seating is limited in the room, candidates will be given seating preference, Latham said. Residents who do not have cable service and cannot receive Channel 22 will be able to watch the live broadcast at the Recreation Center, on Route 1.

For more information on the event, contact Latham, 603-474-3732, or at


Every year about this time, town officials publish Seabrook's Annual Report. The handy book provides information about every agency, board and commission in town government. Lists of births, deaths, marriage certificates, last year's and this year's town warrants are also included.

According to Town Hall staff, the book is at the printers now and is due at Town Hall by Feb. 22. Shortly after that it will be mailed to residents. Copies will also be available at Town Hall.
