2021 Candidates Night Pt. 2 — Village Council & Mayor
- Published: October 20, 2021
On Wednesday, Oct. 20, from 7–9 p.m., the second of two Candidates Nights will be held in the Mills Lawn gymnasium. The 2021 election candidates participating in the first event are those running for Village Council and Mayor.
Council candidates are contesting for three open seats. Three candidates are incumbents, four are new candidates. Incumbent Pam Conine is running unopposed for Mayor.
Sponsored by the James A. McKee Association and facilitated by longtime villager Jalyn Roe, this year’s first Candidates Night will take a hybrid format — interested parties may attend in person or virtually. To help facilitate community access, the Village of Yellow Springs will livestream the event on its Facebook and YouTube pages, as well as on Yellow Springs Community Access Channel 5. Participation is limited to in-person attendance.
Each candidate will be given five minutes to make a statement. During this time, in-person audience members may write questions on a note card, which will be collected by the facilitator. The facilitator reserves the right to combine like questions. Once the candidates have finished with their opening statements, the facilitator will begin asking the written questions. Candidates will be given one minute to respond.
The first Candidates Night was be held Wednesday, Oct. 20, and featured candidates competing for seats on the Yellow Springs School Board and Miami Township Trustees.
