East Greenwich News is presenting a forum for Town Council and School Committee candidates Thursday, Oct. 16, hosted by New England Tech and sponsored by the East Greenwich Chamber of Commerce. It will be the only East Greenwich candidates forum before the Nov. 4 election and will be moderated by Mark Curtis from ABC 6.

There are eight candidates running for Town Council and seven candidates in the running for School Committee. All have been invited to participate. Town Council candidates will be up first – at 6 p.m. School Committee candidates will follow at 7:30 p.m.

On Monday, Oct. 20, EG News is presenting a debate between Republican Mark Gee and Democrat James Callaghan, candidates in the race for the state Senate Dist. 35 being vacated by Dawson Hodgson, candidate for Attorney General. That one-hour debate will also be hosted by New England Tech and sponsored by the EG Chamber of Commerce and begins at 6 p.m.

Here’s where YOU come in – what do you want to hear about from the candidates? Submit your questions to [email protected].

The forum and the debate will be videotaped for later viewing on public access and the EG News youtube channel. But don’t miss out – see the forum live.

Why is the highly visible former Blue Sun lot at the corner of First Avenue and Post Road still vacant after so many years?
