The Shelton Community Vision Coalition is hosting a “Meet the Candidates” event on Wednesday, Sept. 4, at 6:30 p.m. at Plumb Memorial Library. All primary candidates have been invited to attend.

This group, a non-partisan group whose stated mission is to strengthen, inspire and empower the local community, was formed in February. The coalition’s stated purpose is to:

• Define and facilitate communication of community priorities

• Magnify the voice of the community in policy decisions

• Promote community-wide discussion and engagement in policies, projects and initiatives that impact the lives of Shelton residents

• Share ideas that contribute to and maintain our common vision in an environment of continual change
