Milford School Board Candidates Forum Oct. 25

The Milford PTA Council is pleased to invite the public to the Board of Education Candidates Forum on Tuesday, October 25, 2011 at the Joseph A. Foran High School auditorium. The event will run from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. and will be moderated by local radio celebrity Brian Smith. The BOE Candidates Forum is designed to give attendees the opportunity to learn how the candidates running for the Board of Education feel about various educational issues affecting Milford and beyond. The timing of the forum coincides perfectly with the upcoming local election slated for November 8.

Candidates will have the opportunity at the beginning of the forum to give a brief introductory statement. From there, pairs of candidates – one from each party – will be asked the same question that is ‘drawn from a hat.’ Each candidate will have 3 minutes to answer the question.

New this year, and in addition to the questions asked at the event, Council is preparing a booklet of collected responses to a few broad-based questions that were submitted to all candidates in advance.

Council President Kathy Bonetti is pleased with the response the Forum has had in the past and expects a great turnout again this year. “For nearly a decade, the Milford PTA Council has coordinated this forum as a way for Milford voters to learn more about the Board of Ed candidates. We are pleased to continue to provide this service to the community and hope the members of the public join us for this interesting program.”
