CHATHAM, NJ - The League of Women Voters of the Morristown Area are holding a candidate's forum 7:30 Monday, Oct. 24 at the Library of the Chathams for the three candidates running for two spots on the Chatham Township Committee.

Robert Gallop is currently the longest-tenured member of the township committee, but decided to step down after three, three-year terms. Gallop's position, as well as the one held by Chatham Township Mayor Curt Ritter will be up for grabs on Nov. 8.

Ritter, a Republican, is seeking his second three-year term and he is joined on the ticket by fellow Republican John Maurer, who is running for the first time. Democrat Stacey Ewald is running to gain one of the open seats.

Ewald also ran last November and was defeated by then-mayor Kevin Sullivan, who now serves as the township's deputy mayor.
