Candidates Forum on Monday, October 28th at 7:30pm

The Westfield Residents Association (WRA) will host a Meet the Candidates Forum on Monday, October 28th at 7:30pm in the Keigwin Middle School Auditorium. All 46 municipal candidates have been invited. The evening is not a debate, but rather an opportunity for the candidates to introduce themselves and to use the time they have to explain why voters should consider their candidacy.

The evening will run according to the following ballot order:

Mayor - 2 candidates
Common Council - 16 candidates
Treasurer - 2 candidates
Board of Education - 10 candidates
Board of Assessment Appeals - 4 candidates
Planning & Zoning Commission - 12 candidates (including alternates)

The event is scheduled to run for 2 hours, and each block of candidates will be given a specific amount of time to split between the parties. In the event that a candidate does not attend, the time will either be given back to the block or to another block as appropriate.

All members of the public are welcome to attend. The address is as follows:

Keigwin Middle School Auditorium
99 Spruce Street

The WRA will hold its annual meeting starting at 6:30pm, but this meeting will conclude in time for the Forum to start at 7:30pm.

There will be an audience Q&A time for each block of candidates, and first preference for questions will go to WRA members.
