WKTV- A virtual meet and greet with candidates running for Rome School Board was held Wednesday night.
Those who tuned into the online meet and greet could meet the candidates running for school board positions in the Rome City School District, and hear a panel discussion from the candidates.
Candidates who were in the meet and greet included Stephen P. Hampe, Joseph Mellace, Karen Fontana, Anna Megerell, Cynthia Yager, and John Nash.
Chelsea Arcuri, The Community Organizer for the CNY Chapter of the Citizen Action of New York says that it's important to hear from the candidates, even if it's virtual.
"I have lived in Rome my entire life. So I think that this is really important to me, to be able to come together with people that are both on the school board, and are running for the school board with the community. I think that this is a really exciting time for us." said Arcuri.
The Rome City School Board Election will take place on June 9th, by absentee ballot only.
