Also the Community Organization sponsored a Public Forum which was held May 9, 2007, at 7:00 p.m. in the American Legion Post 539 at 62 Newport Street in Glen Lyon.

   All Newport Township Democratic and Republican candidates were invited to this event.  Six of the nine candidates attended.

David Buchinski, Russell Sager, Janine Floryshak, William Hourigan (Write in Candidate), Frank Chest, and Michael Figmic were in attendance.  Paul Czapracki, John Wilkes, Jr. and Michael Roke did not attend.

   The Public Forum was moderated by Stephen Phillips, President of the Community Organization, and all candidates were given the opportunity to answer the same questions.  There was a time limit for each candidate to respond.  Each candidate was asked to bring any material they felt may assist them in responding to the questions.    The candidates were not given any of the questions prior to the Public Forum.  

   Following the question and answer period, the Community Organization hosted a small reception where all of the candidates had the opportunity to meet with those in attendance and discuss their respective platforms with the citizens.
