Leetsdale Plans Upcoming Meet the Candidates Forums
Candidates seeking office and the public are invited to the meet-and-greet sessions.
Leetsdale Borough plans to host several "Meet and Greet" sessions with local legislators and candidates for various offices.
The first session at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 4 is open to all candidates seeking election for any seat that serves the borough, including council, mayor, school board and tax collector.
Candidates are invited to meet and address the public if they desire. The public is also welcome to attend to hear the candidates' platforms and ask questions. Leetsdale Mayor Pete Poninsky, who is up for re-election, will not be in attendance because he will be representing the borough at the Allegheny League of Municipalities Spring Conference in Seven Springs.
Other scheduled sessions are as follows:
9 a.m. Monday, April 8 with Congressman Tim Murphy
9 a.m. Monday, April 22 with Senator Matt Smith
All forums will take place in council chambers at the Leetsdale Municipal Building, 373 Beaver St. If the venue is too small, the events will be moved downstairs.
