The Sugar Grove Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the Elburn Herald invite the community to the "Meet the Candidates Night" on Tuesday, March 12, at the Sugar Grove Community House, 141 Main St., Sugar Grove.

Doors will open at 6 p.m. and the event will begin at 6:30 p.m.

Individuals seeking office with the village of Sugar Grove, Sugar Grove Township, Sugar Grove Public Library, Kaneland Unit District 302, Sugar Grove Fire Protection District, Sugar Grove Park District, and the Waubonsee Community College board of trustees will all be invited to attend the event and will have a chance to introduce themselves.

In addition to village president candidates Sean Michels and Kevin Geary, candidates for the village board and the township supervisor races also will participate in a special question-and-answer time. Before the event, community members will be able to submit questions for the candidates that might be used during the Q&A, with the understanding that time for questions will be limited.

Admission to the event is free. Community members will have an opportunity after the event to meet and speak with candidates. Candidates will be allowed to display and distribute political materials.

This event is being held prior to early voting so that everyone will have the opportunity to hear from candidates before casting ballots. The early voting runs March 25 through April 6, with April 9 being Election Day.

The Sugar Grove Chamber of Commerce and Industry has at its focus the Sugar Grove business community. With the interests of its members and community in mind, the chamber has hosted the "Meet the Candidates Night" for more than 20 years.
