RIVERTOWNS, N.Y. — The League of Women Voters will sponsor a debate at 7:30 p.m. Thursday at the Harmon Community Center at 44 Main St. in Hastings. It will feature the four candidates running for the two vacant Village Trustee positions.

The four candidates running for Village Trustee are Margaret (Meg) Walker (D), Daniel Lemons (D), Bryan Healy (R) and Maryann Manchester (R). The Village Trustee position is a two-year term. Also up for re-election in Hastings is Mayor Peter Swiderski (D), who is uncontested.

The debate offers a perfect opportunity for residents who might not be familiar with the candidates to see them and to hear what they have to say. That way residents will know the candidates' viewpoints and can decide who will best represent them regarding village issues.
