CTA to hold first of three 2009 municipal election forums

The Concord Taxpayers Association [CTA] has booked the first of at least three municipal election forums for the 2009 campaign season.

On Wednesday, Oct. 21, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., the four at-large city council candidates and two Ward 7 candidates will debate at the West Street Ward House, located at 41 West St. at the corner of Badger and West streets, in Concord. All candidates on the ballot have been invited to participate. They will be allowed opening and closing statements and will receive questions from the attending audience.

The Ward 7 candidate portion of the forum between incumbent Keith Nyhan and challenger Steven Sawyer will be held from 6:30 to 7:15 p.m. The at-large portion of the forum, featuring incumbent Dan St. Hilaire and three challengers – Jim Baer, Rick Cibotto, and Michael Dell Iacono, will be held from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m.

The CTA is attempting to secure locations and dates for two other debates: One between the Ward 3 and at-large candidates to be physically held in Ward 3 and one between all of the candidates running for school board.

The public is invited to attend and media outlets are more than welcome to cover this and any of other events scheduled before Election Day.
