Local Election Candidate Forums — Save the Dates and Call for Questions

To: Newport Voters

Alliance For A Livable Newport (ALN) will sponsor a series for public forums leading up to the November elections. Three of those forums will feature the candidates for City Council and the School Committee. These all will be held in the Program Room at the Newport Public Library starting at 6:00 pm on the following dates:

  • September 23 — Candidates for the Second and Third Ward City Council seats (the First Ward seat is uncontested)
  • October 1 — Candidates for the At Large City Council seats
  • October 15 — Candidates for the School Committee seats

Please plan to attend and hear the candidates respond to questions about key topics of interest to Newport’s voters.

ALN will be preparing lists of questions to be asked of the candidates at the forums. In addition, written questionnaires will be prepared for the candidates with their responses to be viewable on ALN’s website, www.newportalliance.org, in matrix format so viewers can scan all of a candidate’s responses or easily compare all of the candidates’ responses to each individual question.

You are encouraged to help us develop the questions for the forums and questionnaires. Please email questions and/or topics you would like included to info@newportalliance.org. Questions must be received by September 10 to be considered.

We need your support! Please DONATE today any amount, $5, $10, $50. $100, to help ALN cover the cost of advertising, promoting and sponsoring these important community public forums.
