Seabrook town news

With the election less than a month away — Tuesday, March 10 — the town's annual Candidates' Night is set for Wednesday, Feb. 18, at 7 p.m. at the Selectmen Meeting Room at the Town Hall.

The program will also be broadcast live on the town's cable assess channel 22.

All candidates running for town, Seabrook and Winnacunnet Cooperative school districts' offices are invited to attend. Candidates are requested to arrive at the Town Hall by 6:30 p.m. for preliminary preparation.

Candidates' Night will be moderated by Assistant Town Moderator Virginia Small and assisted by Owen Latham. Because of limited seating in the Selectmen Meeting Room, candidates will have seating preference.

Citizens who do not have cable access may watch the live broadcast of the event at the Seabrook Recreation Center.

The format allows candidates to make a brief statement on why they wish to run for the office or position, listing their qualifications and how Seabrook will benefit by their election.

Candidates are asked to give their telephone number and e-mail address so they can be contacted for answers to questions citizens might have.

For more information, contact Latham at 603-474-3732, or by e-mail, owenlatham@juno.com.

Political activist Owen Latham wasn't done after getting approval from selectmen for Candidates' Night. He recently made another request of selectmen, asking them to take to the phones during future selectmen's meetings so residents can call in with questions and comments.

Latham suggested a speakerphone could be hooked up after the business portion of the meeting is over so selectmen could take the calls at the end of the meeting and answer them while being broadcast live on channel 22.

Selectmen Aboul Khan and Brendan Kelly thought it might be a good idea for people to call in with their questions ahead of time so selectmen had a chance to review the questions and find appropriate answers.
