2013 Local Candidates' Afternoon
Learn more about the candidates running for local office in Andover at a Candidates’ Afternoon on Saturday, March 16, 1:00 p.m., at Andover’s Public Safety Center. Hosted by the League of Women Voters of Andover/North Andover, the event provides residents with an opportunity to meet and question the candidates in advance of the March 26th election.
All candidates for the following offices have been invited: Town Moderator, Board of Selectmen, School Committee, Andover Housing Authority, and Punchard Free School Trustee; however, not all candidates will participate this year. The participants include Sheila Doherty running for another term as Town Moderator; Paul J. Salafia and Alex Vispoli running for re-election to the Board of Selectmen; and Paula Colby-Clements (incumbent) and Barbara A. L’Italien running for two open seats on the School Committee. The format allows candidates to make statements as well as answer questions and discuss their positions on the important issues facing the community.
League member Heather McNeil, a resident of North Andover, will moderate the event. Questions for candidates may be emailed to voterServiceAndover@lwv-andovers.org. The forum is free and open to the public, and will also be televised live, rebroadcast on cable, and posted online.
