(October 27, 2023) — Local candidates for Haddam town offices participated in an informal “meet and greet” with residents on October 17, 2023, at Brainerd Memorial Library in Haddam.

The First Selectman’s office, Board of Finance, Regional School District 17 Board of Education, and Planning & Zoning Commission were among those represented.
