The Weekly Times will host two North Shore Meet the Candidates Forums for the Saturday April 8 NSW State by-election.

Dates are Tuesday March 28 at Mosman RS Club, 719 Military Road, Mosman at 7pm and Wednesday March 29 at Norths RL Club, 12 Abbott Street, Cameray at 7pm.

The Forums are being organised by concerned citizens who have invited the independent The Weekly Times to host the events.

The Mosman Daily and the North Shore Living magazine declined the invitation to participate.

Several candidates have already accepted the invitation to attend both forums, namely Independent Clr Carolyn Corrigan and The Greens candidate Justin Alick. The Liberal candidate will be pre-selected tonight (Wednesday) and Labor will not contest the seat.

The residents organising committee believes that the North Shore electorate deserves  a fair and open forum to meet and greet the candidates for the important position and to question them.
