We’ve received a number of questions regarding candidates’ use of the PAT Discussion Group Facebook page for their campaigns. Our committee discussed this at length at our December 2019 meeting. The PAT Discussion Group page isn’t monitored frequently, unless someone reports an offensive post. No one on the committee is an admin for the page either. We decided not to change the status quo. Candidates have posted about their candidacy on that page in the past. Of course, this may change for future elections.
