Chamber Corner

By Bethe Reynolds

Greetings from the Chamber.

Come and meet the Candidates!

The Whitehall Chamber of Commerce is hosting a forum for the public to Meet The Candidates, Thursday, March 10, from 6:30-8:00 PM at the LGI Room at the Whitehall High School. This will be an opportunity to hear first hand each Village Mayoral candidate’s platform and get to put a face with the names on the ballot. The Forum will be moderated. Each candidate will have an opportunity to introduce themselves and answer some questions from the community. The 3 candidates for the upcoming election on March 15th, include Ken Bartholomew, Pete Telisky, and Bill Rathbun. We wish to thank them for their willingness to participate.

Doors open at 6:00 PM and this forum is open to all interested community members. If you have a particular question or questions that you would like to have asked, please email your questions to Whitehall Thrives@aol.com  or you can mail your question to Whitehall Chamber, PO Box 97, Whitehall, NY 12887. Please specify if it’s a question to all candidates or a particular candidate. We will also be taking questions from the audience the night of the event. The Chamber is not supporting or promoting any candidate.

Our March Board meeting will be held Thursday March 3rd at 6PM at the Skenesborough Rescue Squad Building.

Look for your member newsletter in the Mail.  Starting with The April Newsletter, members will receive their newsletter electronically, unless we hear from you that you prefer to receive it by US Postal Service.

If you would like a membership application, please contact the Chamber at WhitehallThrives@aol.com .
