First Forum will be held March 9. All Residents Invited to Send Questions in Advance and During Live Broadcasts.
Citizens for Milford will be hosting a series of Candidate Forums beginning March 9. Each of the forums will be live streamed on Milford TV’s Educational Channel (Verizon 40 & Comcast 11) and its other platforms.
Citizens for Milford member José Costa will moderate the forums. Each forum will begin with a two-minute opening statement from each of the candidates. A highlight of each forum will be the exchange of challenge questions between the opponents.
Following the challenge questions, the moderator will pose questions that have been submitted from the public. Milford residents are invited to submit questions during each forum by either calling a phone number displayed on the TV screen or posting messages to the Citizens for Milford Facebook page. Also, residents are encouraged to send questions in advance by posting on Facebook or emailing them to CitizensforMilford@gmail.com. The moderator will make every effort to ensure as many voter questions as possible are posed to the candidates.
The Parks Commissioner candidates will engage in the first forum on Tuesday, March 9, to be followed by the forum featuring the candidates for Board of Assessors on Tuesday, March 16. The Town Meeting Moderator forum will be Wednesday, March 17. The forum featuring all five candidates for School Committee will be Thursday, March 18. All forums will begin at 7:00 p.m.
Providing information to voters during our Town Election season is an ongoing commitment for Citizens for Milford. With the Town Election slated for April 6, we are pleased to continue our tradition of hosting Candidate Forum events. We urge all voters to tune into Milford TV and participate by sending questions for the candidates. – Citizens for Milford Chairperson Geri Eddins
