The League of Women of South Coast is hosting a Candidates’ Night at Old Hammondtown School on Wednesday, May 3 from 6:30 to 8:30 pm. Don Cuddy will act as Moderator for the event.
All candidates running for Town Offices have been invited to participate in the event. There will be three components to Candidates’ Night:
1. Meeting the candidates: Candidates running unopposed will have 5 minutes to introduce themselves, give a brief overview of their qualifications, why they would be a “good fit” for the position, and their understanding of the scope of the office they are seeking.
2. Debates: Candidates running contested races will be given the opportunity, in debate form, to explain their qualifications and lay out their understanding of the scope of the office they are seeking. Debates will be in accordance with League of Women Voters debate guidelines, e.g., “no empty chair” or proxy for a candidate.
3. Review of the Town Warrant by Mike Lorenco, Town Administrator.
