Twenty-seven civic-minded Newport citizens have filed to run for seven City Council and seven School Committee seats this election year promising strong contests for all openings.
As it has since 2008, Alliance For A Livable Newport (ALN) will conduct free public forums to give Newport voters an opportunity to assess the qualifications of the candidates.
At this point, we anticipate holding three forums – one for candidates for the three Ward Council seats, one for candidates for the four at-large Council seats and one for candidates for the seven School Committee seats.
In addition, two online questionnaires — one for City Council candidates and one for School Committee candidates — will be given to the candidates, and their responses will be presented on ALN’s website, www.newportalliance.org/.
We want to hear what Newport’s voters are interested in learning about the candidates.
ALN is requesting the public to submit questions to be answered by the candidates. Questions for the forums and questionnaires will be selected from those received.
To allow time for the questionnaires to be prepared and given by the end of July to the candidates for their responses, your suggested questions must be submitted no later than July 15.
Please send your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org/.
