With online and telephone voting in the City of Sarnia now taking place, an event held last Wednesday (the day before voting began) was a timely opportunity for candidates to put their best foot forward.
Sponsored by the Sarnia Lambton Chamber of Commerce, with support from Lambton Mall, the event took place during an extended “dinner hour” in space adjacent to the food court.
“We have a tradition of helping to encourage active involvement in the political process,” said Shirley de Silva, president and CEO of the Chamber. “This event was one way we were able to extend our reach and encourage one-on-one interaction with the candidates.”
This year’s municipal election has fielded a near-record number of candidates. Voting in Sarnia began October 11 and wraps up on October 22.
