Residents will have a chance to meet the Democratic candidates for Newtown Township Board of Supervisors this week during an “Eat ‘n Greet” event at the Corner Bakery Café.
Jen Dix and Judy Norkin will hold the casual open house event in the café’s Community Room on Thursday from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. There will be complimentary light snacks and families are welcome.
“Attending public meetings can be intimidating for some people. We want to lower barriers to participation. Also, many people aren’t available in the evenings to attend Board of Supervisor meetings. As working women and moms, Judy and I know what that's like,” said candidate Jen Dix.
“We think it is very important for Supervisors to be receptive and available,” said running mate Judy Norkin. “We invite all residents to come out with their questions and concerns," she added.
Two seats on the five-member Newtown Township Board of Supervisors are up for election on Nov. 5. Incumbent Mike Gallagher and Kyle Davis are running on the Republican ticket against Dix and Norkin.
