- We will also tape another Ward 5 Ward Councilor Forum with the two candidates who win the preliminary election on September 10.
Regarding the School Committee races, we are still hoping to schedule the Ward 5 candidates, but have not yet received confirmation from one of the candidates. There will be no Ward 4 School Committee forum, as we could not get confirmation from Alex Koifman, though Tamika Olszewski had planned to attend. There will also no be a Ward 6 School Committee forum, as candidate Galina Rosenblit has chosen not to participate in a forum, though Ruth Goldman had planned to attend.
Please note that the tapings of the forums are not open to the public, though all are encouraged to view the programs on NewTV or online as they become available. We also encourage you to send us your questions using the form available on the lwvnewton.org site, at Questions for Candidates 2019.
