Mayoral Candidates Town Hall forum -- February 18, Miller Library

Silver City, NM – Silver City mayoral candidates will answer audience questions at a Thursday, February 18 town hall meeting in the J. Cloyd Miller Library on Western New Mexico University Campus, beginning at 6:00 pm, according to WNMU vice president Magdaleno Manzanarez, event coordinator.

The town hall will be the next edition of the ongoing "Third Thursday" forums at the WNMU Miller Library. It will allow Silver City voters to interact directly with the three candidates running for Silver City Mayor – Cynthia Ann Bettison, Mark S. Donnell, and Ken Ladner.
