May 1: Meet the Candidates

Meet the Candidates running to be your Committeeperson! 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 1, at the Palumbo Recreation Center, 725 S. 10th St.

Candidates for committee-person in divisions within the 2nd Democratic and Republican wards, which are partly or entirely contained within Bella Vista boundaries, are invited as are state committee candidates in the Pennsylvania Senate 1st District.

A map of the divisions in Bella Vista will be displayed, and volunteers will be available to identify the one that corresponds to your address and to connect you with your candidates.

Are you a candidate? Please RSVP to info@nullbellavistaneighbors.org so we know you’re coming. Everyone running for committee person for either party is welcome and invited to attend — and to invite neighbors.

As a 501(c)(3) non-partisan organization, BVNA is hosting this event to further its missions to provide a neutral and public forum, encourage civic involvement and promote a dialogue with candidates and elected officials. BVNA does not participate in or intervene in any political campaign, nor does it support or endorse specific candidates.
