Candidates Forum Will Be Held March 16th at 7:00 p.m.
Please join us to meet the candidates and ask them YOUR questions!
Citizens for Milford invites all Milford residents to attend its fourth annual Candidates Forum, which will feature candidates in Milford’s upcoming town election. The Candidates Forum will be held Thursday, March 16th in the Parish Hall of Saint Mary of the Assumption Church in Milford. Candidates will be available to meet voters starting at 6:30 p.m. The forum will start at 7:00 p.m. This event is free and open to the public.
The forum will feature the candidates in the five contested races (two seats on the Board of Selectmen, as well as one Constable position, one seat on the Board of Assessors, and one seat on the Planning Board) in Milford’s upcoming town election. Each of these candidates will speak for two minutes and then answer questions from the audience. Recognizing the service of all our town candidates, Citizens for Milford has also invited all unopposed candidates to attend and to meet voters during the “meet and greet” time, from 6:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
Citizens for Milford Co‑chairmen John Seaver and Steve Trettel will moderate the event. “The forum provides an ideal opportunity for residents to meet the candidates, hear their ideas for our community, and discover where they each stand on critical issues. We encourage all Milford voters to join us and to come prepared with questions to ask the candidates,” stated Steve Trettel.
Milford voters who are unable to attend the forum are encouraged to email questions in advance to CitizensforMilford@gmail.com. The group will make every effort to ensure those questions are posed to the candidates the night of the forum.
Milford TV will video record the forum and broadcast it in the days leading up to the election on April 4. Citizens for Milford will also provide a link to the video on its website as soon as it is available.
“As Milford’s local newspaper, delivered to all homes and businesses in town, The Town Crier is pleased to be co-sponsoring this event to encourage citizen participation in Milford’s town government,” said Publisher Alfred Holman.
