Ward 2 Meet and Greet and debate in Woodbridge tonight!

29 Sep

Tonight marks the last of the five Meet and Greet sessions brought to you by the city and its media partners (that’s us — Vaughan Today — and the Thornhill Liberal).

Pop into Al Palladini Community Centre (9201 Islington Ave.) to meet your Ward 2 candidates as well as hopefuls for mayor, regional and trustee. The drop-in session goes from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

It seems the momentum for the Meet and Greet sessions is building. Last week’s Ward 1 session was bustling and I hear the Ward 5 one Monday night was busy as well.

Tonight, however, Vaughan voters have a choice: They can meet most candidates at the Meet and Greet or attend the Vaughan Chamber of Commerce mayoral debate, which will have three mayoral candidates participating (Linda Jackson, Mario Racco and Maurizio Bevilacqua). I’ve put some calls out to see if other candidates will skip the Meet and Greet to attend the debate. (No word yet. Check back later!)

Details for the Chamber debate:

City of Vaughan Mayoral Debate: Who Will Lead Our City into the Future?
Location: La Primavera Hospitality & Convention Centre, 77 Woodstream Boulevard, Woodbridge, ON  L4L 7Y6
Time: 7:00pm
Cost: FREE!  No pre-registration required, however, Vaughan Chamber members can call in advance to receive preferential seating.  Call Jennifer at 905-761-1366, ext 221, or email jennifer@vaughanchamber.ca.

Could you make it to both? Google suggests it’d only take 13 minutes by car.

I suppose it’s doable — Run through the Meet and Greet right at 6:30 p.m., then zip carefully down to the debate for 7 p.m.

What will you do?
