Thanks for our volunteers for the most recent forums!

On Monday night,  candidates for Mayor, for Ward 2 Councilor At-Large, and for Ward 3 School Committee participated in LWVN/NewTV Candidates’ Forums.  Many thanks to the candidates for their time and commitment to this election!

We also want to thank NewTV for once again partnering with us and running everything so smoothly.  Special thanks to co-moderators Marcia Hirshberg (of LWV of Westwood, Walpole and Dedham) and Jenn Adams (of NewTV) and our own LWVN volunteers:  Pat Acton, Barbara Balasa, Bonnie Carter, Lucia Dolan, Lois Levin, Maureen Reilly Meagher, Sharyn Roberts and Tami Roberts.

Here are some photos from Monday night, all courtesy of Tami Roberts.   [Read more…]

Questions Needed: Upcoming forums for Mayor, City Council and School Committee

Send us questions YOU would like to ask candidates for Mayor, Ward 2 At-Large City Council and Ward 3 School Committee.  We can’t guarantee they will be used verbatim, but we will try to address as many topics and questions as possible.  We especially appreciate questions that are direct and about 1-2 sentences long–these tend to mean more direct and focused answers.  Please send them to info@lwvnewton.org.

We are taping these forums on Monday, October 2, starting at 5 pm.  Please feel free to join us at NewTV Studios and watch a live feed in the NewTV conference room–light refreshments will be served.
