The Bedford Democratic Town Committee sent the following invite to all candidates in contested races in the upcoming town election.
All seven candidates who accepted the invitation and appeared at the forum agreed to the format described in the invitation.
The Bedford Democratic Town Committee invites you to a candidate forum on the afternoon of Sunday, March 7th at 3 pm to discuss your candidacy in the upcoming local election. The forum will be held via Zoom and structured to allow each contested candidate to have the floor for eight minutes. We ask that your intro be no more than two minutes, and that the remaining time be allocated to answering questions from the audience. The order of speakers will be determined randomly among those running for a particular office and the forum will proceed in the order of candidates for offices for Board of Assessors, Library Trustees, Board of Health, Planning Board, and Select Board.
We expect the forum to last about two hours. Depending on attendance, we may increase the time allocated per candidate.
