The League of Women Voters of Newton (LWVN) and NewTV are once again co-sponsoring Candidates’ Forums for the 2015 municipal election. All the following forums will take place in NewTV Studios, 23 Needham Street, Newton Highlands.
Please send us your questions for the candidates at firstname.lastname@example.org! We ask that they be relevant to all the candidates in a particular race and be as short as possible. Please note that LWVN might shorten some questions or combine others that are similar, so it’s possible that your particular question isn’t used exactly as submitted. We do try to cover all topics submitted to us.
Candidate Forum Schedule:
October 7: Ward 5 Aldermen-at-Large, 5:30 p.m.
October 8: Ward 5 School Committee, 6:00 p.m.
Ward 3 Aldermen-at-Large, 7:00 p.m.
Ward 2 Aldermen-at-Large, 8:00 p.m.
October 22: Ward 8 Aldermen-at-Large, 7 p.m.
While Alison Leary (Ward 1 Ward Alderman) and Margaret Albright (Ward 2 School Committee) were willing to participate in forums, candidates Allan Ciccone (Ward 1 Ward Alderman) and Cyrus Vaghar (Ward 2 School Committee) declined LWVN’s invitations. LWVN policy prohibits having “empty seat” candidates’ events, and so there will be no Candidates’ Forums for Ward 1 Ward Alderman and Ward 2 School Committee.
