Candidates for several local and state offices will participate in a candidates' forum on Tuesday, Sept. 29, at 6:30 pm in the Council chambers at South Berwick Town Hall.

Candidates appearing are running for South Berwick Town Council, RSU 35 Board of Directors, state House of Representatives and State Senate. Town Council incumbents Mallory Cook and John James are running unopposed, Cook for a second term and James for a third. Russ Abell and Heather Holland are seeking the school board seat being vacated by Paul Stanley. In House District 6, Burnell Bailey is challenging incumbent Tiffany Roberts, who is seeking a second term; in House District 2, Dan Ammons is vying for the seat held by Michele Meyer, who is seeking a second term. In Senate District 35, incumbent Mark Lawrence is being challenged by Brad Moulton.
The annual forum is sponsored by SmartGrowth South Berwick, a volunteer citizens group that supports community activities and commerce in the village center, and is a program of SoBo Central.
