Medfield Candidate Forum is Thursday, March 16 – Community members are invited to submit questions
Between Board of Selectman, School Committee and Library Trustee, Medfield has three contested races for this year’s election – it might even be a record!
In an effort to help educate voters before heading to the polls on Monday, March 27, a Voters Services Committee has organized a Medfield Candidate Forum in the MHS Lowell Mason Auditorium on the evening of Thursday, March 16.
The forum, sponsored by Hometown Weekly, kicks off with a reception in the lobby at 6:30 p.m., followed by the forum at 7 p.m. Through pre-submitted questions posed by moderator Richard DeSorgher, the Q&A portion will focus exclusively on the BOS and School Committee races. Library Trustee candidates will also be present, but will only present short prepared remarks. The evening is scheduled to end at about 8:30 p.m. Plans are also in development to provide attendees with information about the marijuana ballot question.
Anyone interested in submitting anonymous candidate questions for the forum can use this link: http://www.hometownweekly.net/medfield/medfield-candidate-forum-seeks-questions/. Members of the Voters Services Committee, comprised of former Medfield League of Women Voter members and residents involved in civic affairs, will screen questions primarily for duplication and clarity.
All Medfield residents are encouraged not only to attend the Forum on March 16, but to also stop into the Center at Medfield from 5-7 p.m., March 8, for the FOSI “Meet and Greet” with all candidates. http://patch.com/massachusetts/medfield/fosi-hosting-candidate-meet-greet.
Medfield.TV and MHS students have also created videos on each of the candidates that you can find here: http://www.medfield.tv/video-on-demand.
Get ready for a busy election season!
