Romulus chamber hosts Meet the Candidates tonight

Romulus residents can hear directly from the candidates appearing on the Nov. 2 ballot tonight during a Meet the Candidates Night set for 5 until 8 p.m. at the Romulus Athletic Center.

There are 12 candidates seeking the seven terms on the city council include incumbents Kathleen Sullivan Abdo; John Randolph Barden; Celeste Roscoe; Tina Marie Talley; William John Wadsworth; Eva Webb and Virginia Williams.

The incumbents are being challenged by Shakeel Ahmed; Harry Crout; Dwight David Helms; David Gary Hotz and Allen Raymond Wilson.
