Laconia candidates at forum Thursday night

LACONIA — Municipal candidates on the ballot in the November 5 general election will answer questions at a Thursday night forum hosted by the Weirs Action Committee. The forum will be held at the Weirs Beach Community Center — adjacent to the Weirs Beach Fire Station, starting at 7 p.m.

The forum will be moderated by former city councilor and long-time radio talk show host Neil Young. Young stressed that although the meeting is sponsored by the Weirs Action Committee, candidates in all city wards have been invited to participate and residents of all parts of the city are encouraged to attend and learn more about them.

Young said he will ask a series of questions of the candidates to get things started and then will open the floor for questions from the audience.
