The purpose of the event is to enhance community awareness about youth-related issues, provide local candidates an opportunity to connect with young people and offer East Greenwich residents a different kind of opportunity for residents to interact with candidates. Throughout the evening, each candidate will be introduced by the students and allotted three minutes to provide their thoughts on youth related issues. Afterwards, candidates will be encouraged to ‘meet and mingle’ with both students and residents in an informal setting. Refreshments will be provided as well. From 6:30 to 8:45 p.m.
