Christopherson will host March 1 open house Dan Christopherson, candidate for mayor of Vermillion, will host an open house on Monday, March 1, from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. at the Silver Dollar Restaurant in Vermillion.
The event is being held to give supporters an opportunity to stop by any time during those hours to visit with Christopherson and sign his petition, enabling his name to be placed on the ballot for the office of mayor of Vermillion.
"Participants in one of our focus group meetings regarding the city election suggested this format for kicking off the campaign," Christopherson said. "I don't think anything like this has been done before in Vermillion, but since the people suggested it, I am doing it.
"My goal is listening to, and working for, the citizens and taxpayers. I hope any Vermillion residents who believe in this philosophy will stop by the open house."
March 1 is the first day that petitions can begin being circulated for the June 1 city election in Vermillion. It will be combined with a school board election and county and state political primaries on the same day.
