LWVN/NewTV Mayoral Candidates’ Forum on August 9th at 7:30 pm

LWVN and NewTV are collaborating on a series of candidates’ forums this fall, for both the preliminary and general municipal elections.  Our first forum is for all 7 Mayoral candidates, on August 9th, starting at 7:30 pm.  Audience members can watch the live feed in the NewTV conference room, or overflow room if needed.  Light refreshments will be served.

Please note, there is no live audience in the studio.  The program will be available on NewTV.org as soon as possible, as well as broadcast as often as possible on NewTV.  See postings below for info on submitting questions for candidates and for volunteering for this event.

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.
