On September 3, join LWVN and NewTV on September 3, 2015 for a Candidates’ Forum with all five Ward 2 Alderman-at-Large candidates!  The forum will begin at 7pm at NewTV Studios and will ask questions submitted by LWVN members and by the general public.  We encourage all those interested to:

  • submit your questions for the candidates before the forum by emailing them to info@lwvnewton.org
  • join us to watch the forum live in the NewTV conference room.

The forum will be recorded and shown at laters times/dates on NewTV–info on that to follow after the forum.  Please note that questions submitted might not be asked in their original form–those on the same topic might be combined and consolidated.  We will attempt to touch on all the subjects asked, given the time constraints of the forum.  All questions will be kept confidential until the event.

What would you ask the candidates? We want to know!

Send us questions that you would like to hear candidates answer.  They can be for any of the following seats:  Alderman-at-Large, Ward Alderman and School Committee member.  We will be gathering potential questions for upcoming Candidates’ Forums on NewTV and for our Voters Guide.  Send your questions to info@lwvnewton.org….and thanks!
