Citizens with disabilities in Niagara County can question candidates in the November election

Independent Living of Niagara County (ILNC) is holding a FREE “Meet the Candidates” Day to enable Niagara County residents with disabilities — or anyone from the community — to hear and discuss issues with some on the ballot in the November General Election.  Our Advocacy and Public Policy Director Todd Vaarwerk points out that those who achieve local positions now may be the State and National leaders of tomorrow!  So, whatever your political views, this is your year to get involved!

The event is to take place on Wednesday October 25th, from 2:00 to 4:00 PM, in ILNC’s Conference Room at their 746 Portage Road office, in the Haeberle Plaza near Pine Avenue in Niagara Falls, NY.  We’ve invited those running for Niagara County Judge, Legislature and Family Court Judge; Niagara Falls City Council; City of Tonawanda Mayor and Aldermen; and City of Lockport Aldermen, who will address their constituents and take questions.

If an attendee wishes to be familiar with the “hot” disability issues, sheets of suggested questions will be provided; but participants are encouraged to ask about public concerns that are close to them.  The building is fully disability accessible.

Additional information is available by calling (716) 284-4131, extension 200.
