On Tuesday, October 23, the Sachem Legislative Committee will be hosting a Meet the Candidates night to give local residents an opportunity to learn about their positions on education and other local issues.
The event will take place at 7:30 p.m. in the Board of Education room at Samoset Middle School. Organizers have distributed a flyer announcing the informal meeting.
"Please join us so the candidates may get to know us as caring community members and voters," the flyer states. "Let's be a strong voice for education!"
According to a release from the district, some of the officials expected to attend include: Assemblyman Al Graf (R), Assemblyman Dean Murray (R), State Sen. Lee Zeldin (R), State Sen. John Flanagan (R), Randy Altschuler (R), running against Rep. Tim Bishop (D) for U.S. Congress, and Edward Murray, who is running as a Democrat for State Assembly. Invitations were also sent to Rep. Bishop, Assemblyman Steve Englebright (D) and other politicians running for local office.
The release also stated that the meeting may be moved to the Samoset Auditorium.
