Onondaga County Executive Ryan McMahon will answer questions from constituents at five more town hall meetings, his office announced Tuesday.
The town hall meetings are planned for March and April. The latest round of forums will begin at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 12, at Onondaga Town Hall, 5020 Ball Road.
McMahon's town hall meetings will continue at 6:30 p.m. Monday, March 18, at Camillus Town Hall, 4600 W. Genesee St.
The remaining forums will be held in April. McMahon will take questions beginning at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, April 4, at Geddes Town Hall, 1000 Woods Road. The following week, he'll appear at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, April 11, at Lysander Town Hall, 8220 Loop Road.
The series of town hall meetings will conclude in the final week of April. The last forum will be held at 6:30 p.m. Monday, April 29, at DeWitt Town Hall, 5400 Butternut Dr. East.
"The response from the community at our town halls has been tremendous," McMahon said in a statement. "There is a real momentum in our county. We have important issues to address like poverty, our infrastructure and economic development. I'm looking forward to hearing directly from people about additional ways we can work together and move our county forward."
McMahon has already held several town hall meetings throughout Onondaga County. In December, he answered questions during a forum in Skaneateles.
A Republican, McMahon will seek a full four-year term as county executive in November. He was appointed to the position last fall when Joanie Mahoney, the longtime county executive, resigned.
McMahon's likely challenger is Tony Malavenda, who was endorsed by the Onondaga County Democratic Committee last week. Malavenda is a businessman who is running for political office for the second time.
