BEDFORD, N.Y. – Voters will have an opportunity to meet their local and county candidates at a League of Women Voters forum on Thursday, Oct. 15.
The League of Women Voters of Bedford-Lewisboro-North Salem (LWVBLNS) holds the event in the Little Theater at Fox Lane Middle School in Bedford.
The forum begins at 7 p.m. All of the candidates running for the offices of Bedford town supervisor and Town Council have agreed to participate. The candidates running for the Westchester County Board of Legislators in District 2, Francis Corcoran and Karen Schleimer, will be participating as well.
“This is a forum for residents of many towns, not just Bedford,” said Susan Auslander, president of LWVBLNS. “We encourage voters from all of District 2 to come hear what the county legislator candidates have to say.”
The county candidates will go first, allowing voters from outside Bedford to leave before the local Bedford candidates take the stage. District 2 includes the towns of Bedford, Lewisboro and North Salem, as well as Pound Ridge, Mount Kisco, and part of Somers.
“Our format will be a bit different this year,” said Auslander. “During the Q&A segments, questions will come from the moderator and will be a mix of league questions and questions submitted by two local news outlets, The Record-Review and Daily Voice. We think this will add a different energy to the event and believe voters will find it very informative.”
The forum is free and open to the public. It will be broadcast live on BCSD-TV and rebroadcast several times before Election Day.
