City council candidates chat with Kiwanis
The three announced candidates for Rockland City Council were the featured speakers at the October 28 meeting of the Kiwanis Club of Rockland. The trio of council hopefuls were invited as dinner guests and to address the membership to discuss why they want to be elected to the two available municipal seats.
Current councilor Larry Pritchett is seeking reelection, while former councilor Hal Perry and first-time candidate Louise MacLellan-Ruf are seeking to serve for one of the upcoming available three-year terms.
Following the meal and the regular club business session, each candidate provided an opening statement, and then responded to questions on subjects ranging from cruise ships and RSU 13, to opinions on past council actions and the salt shed referendum.

Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world one child and one community at a time. The club meets every Monday at Noon, and beginning November 4, winter meetings will be held at Archers On The Pier overlooking Rockland Harbor.
