WATERVILLE — Candidates for Waterville mayor will answer questions at a forum starting at 6:30 p.m. Friday at Pioneer Park.

Four people are running to replace retiring Mayor Royal DeVaney: Chuck Driver, JD Greening, Loyd Smith and Jill Thompson.

A moderator will ask the candidates questions, and residents can also submit questions on a first-come, first-served basis. Those attending the forum should bring chairs.

Voting starts July 19. The top two candidates emerging from the Aug. 6 primary will advance to the Nov. 5 general election.
