Residents turn out to meet the candidates and ask questions at the Tewksbury Country Club.
More than 150 residents turned out Tuesday night at the Tewksbury Country Club for Tewksbury Patch Candidates Night. It was a chance for the residents to meet and ask questions of the candidates running for office in the Municipal Election on April 2. All the candidates in the contested races were on hand and all but two of the candidates in the uncontested races participated as well. It was a night of good old fashioned politicking. If you were unable to attend Candidates Night, don't fret. The candidates speeches will be rebroadcast on Tewksbury Public Access Television at 9 a.m., 12 p.m., 3 p.m., 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. every day through the election. In the meantime, Tewksbury Patch photographer Maggie Judd captured these images of the event.

GOP candidates address the controversial issue of the Tri-Town Development and its impact on the west side of town.
(Editor's Note: Tewksbury Patch asked the Republican candidates for state representative and state senator five questions on issues related directly to Tewksbury.

I envision Interstate access to be a disaster waiting to happen. Imagine a person late for work or speeding on an icy day, they will most likely lose control of their car and hurt themselves or someone else. The next issue is the yearly flooding problem that occurs on …
Democratic candidates address the controversial issue of the Tri-Town Development and its impact on the west side of town.
(Editor's Note: Tewksbury Patch asked the candidates for Democratic state representative and state senator five questions on issues related directly to Tewksbury. Question1 was published Thursday. Questions 3-5 will run on consecutive days leading up to the primary on Sept. 14.) --- State Senator, 2nd Essex/Middlesex District Jack Wilson, Democrat, Andover The only option on the table right now for local access is a connection to South Street, which is completely unacceptable. The fact that anyone at the state would even suggest that is yet another example of the state bureaucracy being out of the touch with residents. Opening up developable land is a good thing in terms of new for revenue for the town, but the idea of having access to I…
