A message from the WSCC:
As the Suffragists used to say: Onward!
Fredie D. Kay, Esq., President,
On behalf of the WSCC Board of Directors
The LWVN & NewTV candidate forums have begun.
Ward 5 – Ward Councilor Race
The pre-preliminary Ward 5 Councilor forum is now available on NewTV through their government channel. There will be another Ward 5 Ward Councilor forum with the two candidates who win the preliminary election on September 10th.
General Election Forums
The Ward 5 Councilor-at-Large and Ward 2 Councilor forums have been completed and will be aired after Labor Day. The remaining forums have been scheduled to be recorded through mid-September:
Please note that the taping 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 LWVNewton.org!
We are preparing for upcoming LWVN/NewTV Candidates’ Forums and the LWVN Voters’ Guide and need your help! Send us questions YOU would like to ask candidates for At-Large City Council, Ward Council and School Committee seats. 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 use this form to submit your questions: Questions for Candidates 2019.
Our forums will be taped at NewTV, to be shown on NewTV at a later date and available online. Check our website in mid-August for viewing information!
A Public Comment period will be opened July 24th on docket item #208-19 PRESIDENT LAREDO requesting consideration of the recommendations of the special Blue Ribbon Commission regarding compensation for the Mayor, City Council, and School Committee. See the Program & Services Committee Report.
