All Wheeler candidates want to meet and hear from our voters. Another notice was distributed in town, announcing a Candidates Meeting, and 4 of the 7 candidates were not contacted with regard to the date and time of this meeting prior to the distribution of the meeting notice. These 4 candidates only learned about it on the day that the notice was publicly distributed. Previous engagements prevent Karen Matthews, Deanne Ragnell and Clif Kemp from attending. We value your input and invite you to join us for coffee and a chat.
We all recognize the importance of listening to the voters of our village.
