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.

If you are not supporting any of the candidates and can volunteer to help us on Wednesday, please email info@lwvnewton.org.
