Residents will get the chance to hear directly from Romeoville trustee and mayoral candidates during a March 28 debate at Lukancic Middle School, 725 W. Normantown Rd.
Doors will open at 6:30 p.m., and the debate will begin at 7 p.m. The event is hosted by the Romeoville Area Chamber of Commerce.
Scott Slocum of WJOL will be moderating, and a panel of local reporters will be asking the questions.
All six Romeoville trustee candidates have confirmed they will be attending the event, according to Anthony Hamilton of the Romeoville Chamber of Commerce Governmental Affairs Committee. Mayor John Noak has also signed on for the debate, but his opponent had not yet responded, Hamilton said Monday.

Last week, Noak challenged Steve "Mongo" McMichael to a face-to-face debate. While McMichael told Patch his campaign was considering taking part in a debate, he seemed less enthusiastic in an interview with The Herald-News, telling the newspaper, “It would be boring to let him challenge what I have to say ... I’m not interested in listening to him. I’m interested in talking to the people of Romeoville.”
