Voters to tackle candidates on local issues

Voters in Castletown will have an opportunity to question local election hopefuls at a public meeting on Monday night. 

Nine candidates are standing for seven seats on the Board of Commissioners.

They will each be asked to set out their vision for the future of the town, before taking questions from the floor. 

Voters will be invited to raise any topic relating to 'the running of Castletown'.

The requisition meeting at the Civic Hall will start at 7pm and will be chaired by Chris Thomas MHK.
