The League of Women Voters - Downeast, together with the Mount Desert Islander, is hosting a candidate forum for Bar Harbor Town Council. This event will feature all seven candidates for the three-year term: Maya Caines, Erin Cough, Gary "Bo" Jennings, Cosmo Nims, Val Peacock, Kyle Shank, and Nathan Young. The forum will be  moderated by Chris Crockett, publisher for MaineStay Media.

This is a great way to hear from the candidates and learn what they have to say on the issues! 

This forum is hosted via Zoom. A video archive of the event will be available for those who cannot attend live.
