Meet the City Council Candidates – Saturday Night at the Races

5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Join LWVN and its co-sponsors – Charles River Regional Chamber of Commerce, Green Newton, Mothers Out Front Newton, Newton Conservators – on Saturday evening, October 23, 2021, for Newton’s second biennial Saturday Night at the Races. Like most everything else in 2021, this event will be virtual, but it will be fun!!

The goal of the evening is to provide voters an opportunity to learn more  about city council candidate positions on important challenges and issues that Newton is facing today.  Therefore all city councilor candidates, whether or not they have a challenger, are invited for this evening.

Each ward is represented by a table, and each of the candidates running for office in that ward able to attend the event are seated at the table and are available to answer voter questions.  A moderator assigned by the League of Women Voters – Newton (LWVN) is present at each table to make sure all voters have a chance to ask their questions, and to insure each candidate has an equal opportunity to speak.  Voters are given approximately 15 minutes at each table before they are asked to move on to another table. There are eight rounds so that each voter has an opportunity to visit with the candidates from each ward.
