Press Release: Acton Candidates Forum
Monday, April 10 at 7 pm at Acton Town Hall, Room 204, 472 Main Street, Acton MA
The League of Women Voters Acton-Area will host a Candidates Forum ahead of the Tuesday, April 25 Election Day. All candidates whose names will appear on the town ballot have been asked to participate. If a candidate is in a contested race, they will appear on a panel for the race and answer a series of pre-selected questions from League and from voters who have submitted questions ahead of time. If a candidate is in an uncontested race, they will be given the opportunity to make a statement. Read the Press Release here.
