MILTON — Residents will have a chance to get answers from people seeking elected positions this year.

The candidates night is scheduled to begin Thursday at 6:30 p.m. in the Emma Ramsey Center along White Mountain Highway on Route 125.

Susann Foster Brown, who's helping organize the event, said that because Metrocast will not be recording the forum, it's even more important for candidates and fellow residents to attend. She added all candidates.

Brown said candidates, who are invited to the forum when they file for the position, will have a chance to make a statement before answering questions.

"We depend on questions from the audience," Brown said.

Chris Jacobs, who is seeking reelection as moderator for both the town and the district, will facilitate the session.

Incumbent Luella Synder and Brandy Banks are seeking a three-year spot on the School Board while Paul Steer and Larry Brown are vying for a one-year term on the board.

On the town side, Michael Troy Bernier is challenging Selectman Tom Gray, who is seeking reelection, while Brandy Banks and Karen Brown both are looking to fill a four-year term as supervisor of the checklist.

No one filed to serve as school district clerk or for three-year terms on the Budget Committee and as the cemetery trustee. Brian Boyers is seeking reelection for one of the two open seats on the Planning Board.

All other town and district positions are uncontested.
