The Barnegat Republican Organization announced a meet and greet at Pinewood Estates Fire house, Monday, September 24, 2012 from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., with light refreshments served at 6:30 PM.
Visitors will have a chance to meet: Joe Kyrillos for U.S Senate; Jon Runyon for U.S Congress; Gerry Little and John Bartlett for Ocean County Freeholders, and Al Cirulli and Jeff Melchiondo for Barnegat Committee.
The meet and greet comes one day after candidates in the Barnegat election received a letter from the League of Women Voters that a candidate's forum that had been planned in the township is now cancelled, due, "to the decision on the part of the Republican candidates to not participate."
"The meet and greet is not a debate about issues, that's the Republicans giving their spin on things," said Elaine Taylor, who is running, along with Susan Conway, for two committee seats. "That's not how you truly let a Barnegat taxpayer know what you stand for."
