LWV candidate forum tonight at Emerson School

Plainfield's chapter of the League of Women Voters will host its candidate forum this evening at Emerson School, starting at 6:30 PM.

Since the nonpartisan school board elections have been moved to the November general election date, the forum will feature two segments -- one part for the Board of Ed candidates, and a second for the contested local Council races.

All candidates for both Council and Board of Ed were invited to submit biographical profiles and answers to questions posed by the LWV in advance. For those who chose to respond (not all did), the material has been posted on the Plainfield League's website (see here).

Though they will not be debated, the public questions on the November ballot (including one for funding open space acquisition and management in Plainfield) are also on the website (see here).

Emerson School is at East Second Street and Emerson Avenue. Parking available in the school lot or on the street. Please be considerate of residents' driveways.
