It will be interesting to see how Candidate Nation responds to this news and the invitations linked to it.
Here's a press release from GrassRoots Guelph:
Guelph, August 28, 2014 – GrassRoots Guelph (GRG) will host its second major event on Thursday, September 18, 2014 from 5:30 – 9:00 p.m. at the Guelph Golf and Curling Club (133 Woodlawn Road East). The public, GRG members/supporters and all registered Mayoral, City Council and School Board candidates are invited to attend.
GRG’s “Meet the Candidates BBQ” will allow residents to meet registered candidates in an informal setting, and also to meet other Guelphites who share their interest in municipal government and the future of our city. In the weeks following the BBQ, GRG plans to organize candidate debates in every ward. Guelph residents should keep checking the GRG website (www.grassrootsguelph.ca) for information about when and where the debates will be held.
Tickets for the BBQ are $20 per person if bought online and $25 at the door. They can be purchased through GRG’s homepage at www.grassrootsguelph.com or by calling 519-837-4010. Student tickets are $15 and are only available at the door.
Ticket prices do not include a donation to GRG because this event is not a fundraiser. However, ticket prices do include a raffle ticket for a door prize. People who bring donations to the Guelph Food Bank will be given an extra raffle ticket.
