In what might have been a first, every candidate for a contested Carbon County row office gathered in the same room last night and was granted a public forum to present his platform.
Tax Day/Candidates Night was presented by the Lehighton 9/12 Project at Penn's Peak in Jim Thorpe.
It was the second such event. Last October a debate was staged by Lehighton 9/12 at Penn's Peak for individuals seeking state offices.
The Tax Day/Candidates Night was a bi-partisan event in which both Democrat and Republican parties participated.
