NORWICH – With the Republican primary elections set for Thursday, candidates in both the race for Chenango County District Attorney and the race for City of Norwich Mayor took one last opportunity to network with the business community at a meet-and-greet hosted by Commerce Chenango on Tuesday.
The event was a chance for all contenders appearing on the Republican primary ballot to voice their opinions on critical issues, and to address concerns of local leaders in the public, private, and non-profit sectors.
“We have a primary for Mayor on the Republican side and a primary for District Attorney. It’s very possible that the decision will be made two days from now, and not on election day in November,” said Commerce Chenango President and CEO Steve Craig. “As a chamber of commerce, we think interaction with those who make public policy is a very important thing.”
Four individuals – two vying for District Attorney and two others for the mayoral seat in the City of Norwich – will appear on Thursday’s ballot. All four have campaigned on a platform of either experience or change.
