The following is a press release from the League of Women Voters in Framingham
FRAMINGHAM – The Framingham League of Women Voters and MetroWest Daily News are hosting their next candidate forum on Sunday, October 20th from 2-3 pm in the Costin Room at the Framingham Library, 49 Lexington Street.
Candidates appearing on the November ballot for District Councilor in District 1 will be participating. Those candidates are Christine Long and Joe Norton.
Questions were solicited from residents, and we will be taking written questions from the audience at the event as time allows.
“We hope residents of District 1 will join us for this candidate forum to ask questions of the candidates that are important to them, and to hear their responses on issues that matter in our city. An informed electorate is critical to the success of democracy, and local elections impact decisions in our own community,” said Stephanie Deeley, president of the League of Women
Voters of Framingham.
This event is being taped for broadcast on public access later, and will be on Facebook Live on the LWV Facebook page.
The League will be holding additional forums later this month: on Sunday October 27 at 2 p.m. for District 5 & 7 candidates and on Monday, October 28 at 6 p.m. for District 8 and At Large candidates.
