City Council/School Board forum Wednesday, Oct. 28

The Concord Taxpayers Association will be having another municipal election forum from 7 to 9 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 28, on the other side of town, at the Beaver Meadow Golf Course Club House, 1 Beaver Meadow Drive.

From 7 to 7:45 p.m., the four candidates vying for two at-large city council seats – Jim Baer, Rick Cibotto, Michael DellIacono and Dan St. Hilaire – have again been invited to meet and discuss the issues facing our city and will answer questions submitted by you. At 8 p.m., the two candidates running for the one 1-year seat on the school board – Tom Croteau and Bill Glahn – will talk about why they are running and answer questions from attendees. I’m told the clubhouse will still be serving beer and wine so it might be nice to have a drink too.

Please note: The LWV/Walker-Kimball PTO school board candidates night scheduled for Tuesday has been cancelled. So our night on Wednesday will be the only opportunity to see the two school board candidates answer questions from the public.

There was a nice turnout to last night’s event, including a number of elected officials and CTA supporters. The candidates answered numerous questions about why they were running. The Concord Monitor sent a reporter and photographer. You can see their coverage in today’s print edition or here online:

Election Day is Tuesday, Nov. 3. Polls will be open 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.
