Rockton candidates share views at forum


In Rockton, April voters hear from Trustee and Village President Candidates.

 There are five Village Trustee Candidates running and only three spots to be filled.  Three of the five are incumbents.  There are three Village President Candidates.  At Tuesday night's forum, candidates focused on how they will balance the commercial growth on Rockton Road while preserving the historical downtown.

 Residents showed up to hear candidates' views as well as simply educating themselves on the election in general.

 Scott Anderson, a Rockton resident, comments "I'm really curious about how Rockton, which seems to be doing well now, makes the right decisions today that will have it in the right place decades from now."

 Anthony Jenkins also from Rockton says "I guess as you get older you start to realize how much decisions that these guys make on this level, really affect you and your family and I've got three kids."

 The Rockton Chamber of Commerce hosted the forum.
