The Pike County Courier is inviting the public to attend a forum with the candidates running for Borough of Milford Mayor and Borough Council, where they will talk about the issues and answer questions on Wednesday, Oct. 25.

In the mayoral race, the incumbent is Sean Strub, a Democrat who has been serving since his appointment as Mayor by the Milford Borough Council in May 2016. He is being challenged by Nick May, a Republican who served on the Borough Council from 2010 to 2015.

Both are running for a four-year term.

In the council race, there are four candidates running, for three seats on the council. Incumbent Rob Ciervo, a Republican, has been a council member since 2013. He is being challenged by Republican Aaron May, who was recently appointed to a two-year council seat after the council president, Patrick Beck, resigned.

If Aaron May wins, he would resign from his current council seat at the end of 2017 and someone would be appointed in January 2018 to that seat to serve for the remainder of the two-year term.

Democrat Kim Reno is challenging the other incumbent, Frank Tarquinio. Also a Democrat, Tarquinio has been a council member since being appointed in 2013.

All four candidates are running for a four-year term.

Ahead of the forum, the public can submit questions to The Pike County Courier at editor.pcc@strausnews.com. The Pike County Courier Editorial Board will be asking candidates questions, some of which will be those submitted in advance by the public.

The Editorial Board is made up of Pam Chergotis, managing editor of The Pike County Courier and The Chronicle, Joe Picard, managing editor of The Sparta Independent and The Township Journal, and reporter Erika Norton.

The forum is free and open to the public. Those planning to attend should reserve a seat by emailing events@strausnews.com.

The event will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 25 at Borough Hall, 109 West Catharine Street, Milford.
