The League of Women Voters of Sudbury is a nonpartisan political organization encouraging informed and active participation in government. We influence public policy through education and advocacy.
The forum is sponsored by the League of Women Voters of Sudbury. The program starts at 7:30 p.m., with coffee and a chance to meet the candidates at 7:15 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.
Two separate Selectman positions will be voted on in the June 25 election. A two-year term will expire in 2015 and a three-year term will expire in 2016. The election will change the number of Selectmen in Sudbury from three to five.
Six candidates have filed for the election: Daniel DePompei, Carmine Gentile, Thaddeus Gozdeck, Eric Poch, Leonard Simon and Charles Woodard.
They have all filed papers to run for both positions, but can only be on the ballot for one. The candidates must withdraw from one of the races by 5 p.m. May 21.
The June 25 election also includes the election to fill the vacant U.S. Senate seat. The polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. The deadline to register to vote in this election is June 5.
Audience members will be able to submit written questions to the candidates that evening. Questions may also be submitted in advance by email to email@example.com until 5 p.m. Tuesday, May 28.
Candidates' Night will be shown live on Sudbury cable local access Channel 8 (Comcast) and Channel 31 (Verizon) and will be repeated several times before the election. The program will also be available on the station's website, http://www.sudburytv.org, as a video-on-demand option.
The League of Women Voters is a non-partisan organization and does not support or oppose any political party or candidate.
Typically, women leaving an abusive relationship arrive at shelters with no money, nowhere to live and just the clothes on their backs. Shower For Shelters helps families transitioning from a shelter establish their new homes. Your generous donations of NEW household items help them. It gives the families strength to see the care and support of the community when they are taking the steps to rebuild their lives free of abuse. Shower For Shelters also helps the shelters and transitional housing programs of REACH, The Second Step and Voices Against Violence.
