I’m taking some personal time today. But I’m re-running my Candidates’ Night post as a reminder.

Library Trustees have issued their public invitation to the annual town Candidate’s Night:

The Trustees of the Southborough Library will hold their annual “Candidates’ Night” at the Southborough Library on Wednesday evening, May 7, to give voters a chance to meet the candidates and get answers to issues of concern. All candidates running for election or re-election in May have been invited.

The evening will begin at 6:30 p.m. with a “Meet & Greet” session with refreshments. A program with candidates in contested races only will begin promptly at 7:00 pm. Former Town Moderator John Wilson will serve as moderator for the evening.

Candidates’ Night is one of the Southborough Library’s civic programming events furthering its long-range mission to be “the center for life-long learning at the crossroads of our community.” The Library is located at 25 Main Street, Southborough. Handicap access is available through the elevator at the lower level entrance.

For a reminder of who is running for contested positions (Board of Selectmen and School Committee) and their position papers, check the blog’s Town Election page.

And make sure you mark your calendar to vote on May 12th.

I want to thank the Library Trustees for hosting this very important event. I’ve attended all 4 of their candidate’s nights, and this one was by far the most well attended. I’m also glad the Trustees were able to get the forum video taped, as I’m sure it will be replayed many times on cable access until election day on Monday.

If you were not able to get to the library last night, there was very valuable information from the K-8 School Committee candidates and the 7 Board of Selectmen candidates. Please try to watch it on television. Be informed and get to the polls this Monday, May 12th!!! You’re vote really does matter in this election.
