Meet The Candidates Night' Tonight at TCC
Event will give voters a chance to hear from each of the candidates and meet them face-to-face.
As part of our coverage of the 2013 Tewksbury Municipal Election, Tewksbury Patch will be sponsoring a Candidates Night on Tuesday, March 26, at Tewksbury Country Club.
The event will begin at 7 p.m. All candidates on the ballot, both in contested and uncontested races, are invited to participate.
The event is free and the public is both invited and encouraged to attend.
The Candidates Night will feature "Meet and Greet" time with the candidates at both the start and the end of the evening. In between, each candidate will have the opportunity to make a five-minute speech.
There will be a cash bar available.
"We're pleased to once again be hosting an event that gives voters a chance to meet the candidates face-to-face," said Tewksbury Patch Editor Bill Gilman. "Not only do voters have a chance to hear a 'stump' speech but they can meet these men and women, look them in the eye, ask them questions one-on-one and get a good sense of their character."
The event will be videotaped for later broadcast on Public Access TV.
In addition, Tewksbury Patch and the Town Crier will be co-sponsoring a debate for candidates fof the Board of Selectmen and School Committee on Monday, April 1 at Tewksbury High School.
Readers are invited to email suggested questions for the debate to Editor Bill Gilman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
