The Auburn Democratic Town Committee will be hosting a Candidates Forum Thursday, April 28, 2016, in the Selectmen’s Meeting Room at Town Hall at 7pm.

Each candidate running for an elected position in the May Town Election, with the exception of those running to be town meeting members, has been invited to participate. In addition to making brief opening and closing statements, the candidates for the contested offices will have an opportunity to respond to prepared questions, randomly selected for them.

After a 1-2 minute response, opposing candidates can offer a 1 minute response or rebuttal. The questions will be relevant to the office being sought.

Massachusetts own Speaker of the House Thomas P. “Tip” O’Neil said, “all politics is local.” And, local government affects your life the most.

Local ACTV is planning to broadcast the Forum live, and it will be rebroadcast before the town election.
