KEENE VALLEY - Seniors at Keene Central School will lead a public discussion on the 2012 presidential election Thursday evening.
The event is scheduled to start at 7 p.m. and will be held in the Keene Central School auditorium. Students from Brad Hurlburt's government class will talk about positions and party platforms for all of the presidential candidates, not just Republican Mitt Romney and Democrat Barack Obama.
The information presented will be based on research conducted by the students themselves. The students worked with members of different political parties, and those individuals have been invited to attend Thursday night's forum.
In New York state, six candidates are on the ballot in the presidential race. In addition to Obama and Romney, voters will be able to choose from Jill Stein, Green Party; Peta Lindsay, Socialism and Liberation Party; Gary Johnson, Libertarian Party; and Virgil Goode, Constitution Party.
Hurlburt will moderate the forum, which is open to the public. For more information, contact Hurlburt at 518-576-4555 or firstname.lastname@example.org, or Fred Balzac at 518-946-7861 or email@example.com.
