Stanford Grange #808 will host its annual Meet the Candidates Forum on Tuesday, October 23, 2012, at the Stanford Grange Hall, 6043 Route 82, Stanfordville, beginning at 7:30 p.m. Candidates for public office including Dutchess County Legislator (District 19), State Assembly (District 105), State Senate (District 41), US House of Representatives (District 19), and US Senate have been invited to participate. Each candidate will be given an opportunity to introduce themselves, state their goals and objectives if elected or re-elected, and answer questions from the audience. This is not a debate between the candidates, but a chance for the citizens they wish to represent to get to know them and ask questions. For more information, contact Grange Secretary Ryan Orton at (845) 868-7869.
