Meet the Candidates – October 13, 2013

OCTOBER 4, 2013

Castle Hill Farm, 25 Sugar Lane, Newtown
Sunday, October 13th from 5:00 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.

The truly great thing about politics at the local level is that voters have enormous impact, and better opportunities to know the candidates personally.
To give you a chance to meet many of the Democratic Party slate, the Newtown Democrats are hosting a Meet the Candidates event on Sunday, October 13 from 5:00 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. at Castle Hill Farm, 25 Sugar Lane, Newtown.  You can gather around the bonfire on a fall afternoon and chat informally with the candidates and ask questions. Please join us and meet our exceptional candidates while enjoying a cup of cider and goodies.
Newtown is a wonderful town.  Part of the reason is that good people, like these outstanding Democratic candidates, donate so much time toward making and keeping it remarkable.  We look forward to seeing you on October 13th!
