The three Neighborhood Area Councils of Ward 5 will be hosting a candidates forum the week before the election. The forum will be held at the Emerson Center, One Pettee Street, Upper Falls. Candidates for Ward 5 Alderman at Large, Candidates for Ward 2 School Committee and Candidates for Mayor have been invited to answer questions from a neighborhood perspective with citywide impact. The forum is scheduled for Wed. Oct 30th from 7:00 to 9:30 and will be moderated by Marjorie Arons-Barron.
While the location of this event has a Ward 5 focus, all are welcome and encouraged to attend. Note that World Series updates will be provided during the evening, in the event that a sixth game is needed for the Red Sox to win the series.
Questions can be sent to members of the Newton Upper Falls Neighborhood Area Council, Newton Highlands Neighborhood Area Council or newly form Waban Neighborhood Area Council. Questions will also be taken from the floor during the forum.
