|Candidates' Night 2014.
An annual event organized by the League to provide Town Meeting and Town-Wide Office candidates an opportunity to present their positions on issues and to listen to constituents' concerns.
During the first part of the evening, candidates for Town Meeting will gather in the Clarke School Cafeteria to meet over refreshments to exchange ideas with voters from their precincts. At 7:45 pm, participants will gather in the school auditorium to hear the views of candidates seeking Town-Wide elective office (i.e., Town Moderator; Board of Selectman; Planning Board; School Committee; and Housing Authority), followed by a moderated question and answer period.
The evening promises to be informative and to provide a lively forum for discussion of topics that may be voted on at Town Meeting.
Doors will open at 7 p.m. and precinct meetings will start at 7:15. There is no admission charge and the public is encouraged to attend.
