Candidates for elective office in the town of Westborough will take part in a Candidates Forum sponsored by the Westborough Democratic Town Committee. The event is scheduled for Sunday, March 5 at 6:00 PM. Candidates for Select Board, School Committee, Town Clerk, Town Moderator, Trustees of Library, Planning Board and Trustees of Soldiers Memorial have been invited. The election will take place on March 14, 2023.
“This is a great opportunity to hear from those candidates seeking your vote in March and to ask questions of the candidates,” commented Kate Donaghue, former chair of the sponsoring group. “We very much appreciate the citizens who serve the town so generously and who take the time meet with voters at Candidates Forum.”
The Westborough Democratic Town Committee sponsors this event every year as a service to the town and to encourage voters to become participants in the election process. “Democracy is not a spectator sport,” noted Ms. Donaghue.
There are contests for School Committee and Library Board of Trustees. Paula Mathieu, Jakub Moskal and Sarah Shamsuddin are candidates for School Committee. Debra Cushman, Michael Karp, Dot Mello and Julia Rissmiller are all candidates for Library Trustees. Jeanine Mindrum and Ciaran O’Donnell are both running for a one year term as a Library Trustee.
A number of candidates are unopposed: Ian Johnson for Select Board; Hazel Nourse and John Gelcich for Planning Board; John Arnold for Town Moderator; Deborah Ledoux for Town Clerk; Brian Corcoran for Trustees of Soldiers Memorial.
The event will be virtual as was done in the two previous years. Please RSVP for this event for viewing details and for information on submitting questions.
The Westborough Democratic Town Committee is the local organization of the Democratic Party. For more information on the Town Committee or the Candidates Forum please contact Kate Donaghue at 508-404-8531 or by e-mail at KateDonaghue@aol.com.
