Questions Needed for Mayoral Forum and Ward 1 Ward Councilor Forum

LWVN is now collecting questions for the August 9th Mayoral Candidates’ Forum as well as the upcoming Ward 1 Ward Councilor Candidates’ Forum.   Please note our question sorters may need to combine similar questions in order to cover as many topics as possible–so you may not hear your exact question being asked, but hopefully we can cover the topic.  Candidates are not given the questions before the event.

We recommend that your question(s) be short and direct, so that the candidates will address the topic you are asking about.  Feel free to submit ALL your questions to info@lwvnewton.org.

Volunteers Needed for Candidates’ Forums and Vote411 Guide

Candidates aren’t the only ones preparing for the LWVN/NewTV forums and voters’ guide!  We are also busy and could use volunteers to help with:

  • sorting questions from about 6 pm on August 9th
  • being a timekeeper during this forum (staying in the studio for the entire program)
  • greeting visitors and helping clean up on August 9th
  • helping organize VOTE411, as we do this for the first time

Volunteers need to be non-partisan in this race, meaning that they are not supporting any of the candidates who will be a part of the forum.  If you can help, please contact info@lwvnewton.org.

Where does LWV stand on the Election Integrity Commission request?

FROM LWVMA:  The League strongly condemns the recent request from President Trump’s Election Integrity Commission for voter records, including private information, from all 50 states; at the same time, LWVMA applauds Secretary of the Commonwealth William Galvin for refusing to comply with the request and has sent him a letter thanking him for his stance.  We encourage LWVMA members to also contact Secretary Galvin to thank him for his refusal to comply with the commission’s request
