Already tired of presidential politics? How about a town clerk's debate to bring matters a little closer to home?
The Natick League of Women Voters is putting on a debate tonight featuring the four candidates vying to be Natick town clerk. The debate begins at 7:30 tonight at the Morse Institute Library, 14 E. Central St.
The four candidates will face off in a preliminary election Feb. 27 that will choose the two candidates who will appear on the March 27 general election ballot.
The candidates are Judi Kuhn, an employee in the clerk's office; David Ordway, a member of the Recreation and Parks Commission; Diane Packer, a former member of the School Committee; and Jeffrey Phillips, a member of Town Meeting.
Town Clerk Jane Hladick is retiring this spring.
The clerk handles important town documents like wedding and birth records, runs the town elections, and handles the release of public records, among other duties.
