A local group hosted a Meet the Candidates evening at the Lebanon Farmers Market on Thursday night, giving the public a chance to hear from their potential representatives directly.
Organized by Lebanon Diversity Social, an impact initiative led by Rafael Torres, the event saw attendance by all Lebanon County Commissioner and Lebanon City Council candidates, as well as a number of other offices.
“The evening showed us that much can be accomplished when we put our differences aside and instead focus on making Lebanon a better place for everyone,” said Torres.
“We greatly appreciate the participation of all of the candidates and supporters who attended.”
“It was a great evening for voters to hear from the candidates,” said Cornell Wilson, who helped Lebanon Diversity Social organize the event.
LebTown photographer Will Trostel was there to capture the scene.
