SOUTH PORTLAND — The South Portland Land Trust will quiz City Council candidates on a wide variety of environmental issues at an election forum to be held Tuesday evening in the council chamber at City Hall.

The trust has invited the seven candidates who are running for two at-large seats in the Nov. 8 election. They are Maxine Beecher, who is the incumbent, Richard Carter, James Gilboy, Susan Henderson, Kate Lewis, Louis B. Maietta Jr. and Michael Pock. Steve Jocher, trust president, will serve as moderator of the 7 p.m. event.

Jocher said past forums hosted by the trust have revealed a great deal about candidates’ positions on the use of open space and other environmental concerns that are hot topics in South Portland and across the nation.

“Taxpayers want to know their candidates’ views,” Jocher said in a news release.

Prepared questions will cover subjects such as funding for the South Portland Land Bank, the city’s open space plan, land acquisition bond questions, recreational trails and maintenance responsibilities, and pets and open space. Members of the public also will be invited to ask questions.
