Compo to host free “Community Coffee Hour” events

WATERTOWN, NY —  Watertown City Council candidate Sarah V. Compo is announcing she will host a series of free “Community Coffee Hour” events during the months of September and October.

“When it comes to learning more about the concerns of residents, and the ideas they have for improving Watertown, there’s no substitute for face-to-face conversation,” said Compo.

“I look forward to talking firsthand with people from across the city at my Community Coffee Hour events and encourage anyone looking to share their views—and enjoy free coffee and donuts—to attend.”

All Community Coffee Hour events will take place from 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM. Dates and locations are as follows:

  • Saturday, September 28: Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Church’s Dostie Hall (320 West Lynde St.)

  • Saturday, October 12: Atman Juice Bar and Cafe (99 Public Square)

  • Saturday, October 28: St. Anthony’s Church’s Msgr. Sechi Hall (850 Arsenal St.)

Compo is a graduate of Immaculate Heart Central High School and SUNY Geneseo. Currently, she is employed by State Senator Patty Ritchie. She is also a small business owner, and operates Soirée NNY, the North Country’s first-ever day-of event coordinating service provider.

Previously, Compo worked as a weekend anchor and reporter for WWNY-TV 7 News. She began her career as a reporting assistant for NBC Today Show Financial Editor Jean Chatzky.

Compo was appointed in January to serve a one-year vacancy on Watertown City Council. In June’s Watertown City Council Primary, she was the top vote-getter, earning nearly 1,700 votes.
