South Westmeath election forum to be held on Wednesday

With the local elections fast approaching, the Westmeath Independent is hosting a public debate involving Athlone area candidates who are seeking election to Westmeath County Council on May 23. 

With Athlone Town Council being abolished, this local election carries added significance in the town and its surrounding areas. 

The public forum is taking place in the Radisson Blu Hotel, Athlone, on Wednesday (May 14) at 7pm. All candidates for the Athlone Municipal District of Westmeath County Council have been invited to participate.

We hope the event will result in a lively and engaging debate on the issues that matter to people in Athlone and other parts of South Westmeath. 

The format for the evening will allow each candidate to briefly outline their election priorities at the outset. This will be followed by a question and answer session, which will be moderated by Westmeath Independent editor Tadhg Carey.

There will also be opportunities for spontaneous questions from the floor.
