The League of Women Voters for Brunswick has once more agreed to host a televised forum for candidates for Brunswick Town Council. There is just one contested race this year. Byron Watson, Bill Dana and Benet Pols are vying for the At-Large spot being vacated by Debbie Atwood.

While the candidates are provided with one advance question, the rest of the questions come from the audience. Typically, audience members write questions on cards and a league member sorts them to avoid repetition; the question is then put to all the candidates by a moderator.

The larger the audience, the broader the spectrum of questions. Please come with questions.

Thursday the 29th of September
7:00 PM
Municipal Meeting Room
Maine Street Station
