JAMESTOWN – The League of Women Voters of Chautauqua County will host a Meet the Candidates forum this week at Jamestown Community College featuring the candidates for Chautauqua County Sheriff and NY Assembly (150th Assembly District).
The event, jointly sponsored by the Jamestown chapter of the American Association of University Women and the Political Science Department of Jamestown Community College, will take place at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 23, in the Weeks Room at JCC.
During the event the audience will be able to question candidates for the Assembly, Republican incumbent Andrew Goodall and his Democrat challenger, Judy Einach, and also incumbent Democrat Sheriff Joseph Gerace and his Republican challenger, James Quattrone. Some of the candidates are sponsored by additional parties and will appear on more than one line on the ballot.
Time-keepers are strict about keeping the candidates’ statements brief so that many members of the audience can ask questions. Candidates are also encouraged to question one another in true debate form. The candidate events are free and open to the public.
A second Meet the Candidates event will also take place in the north county at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 30, in the courtroom in Dunkirk City Hall.
