The Alliance for a Livable Newport (ALN) will hold the first public candidate forum of the 2014 election season featuring your candidates for City Councilor in Council Wards Two and Three.
The forum will be held on Tuesday, September 23, from 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm at the Newport Public Library.
Two candidates from each ward will introduce themselves and answer questions on the key issues facing Newport. The forum will provide an opportunity for voters to hear the candidates’ positions on these issues and their answers to the tough questions you want to ask.
The following candidates will participate:
Ward Two Candidates: Martha Marie Grogan and Lynn Ceglie
Ward Three Candidates: John Edwards and Kate Leonard
(Ward One is uncontested)
The Forum will be moderated by Patty Macleish, a board member of the League of Women Voters (LWV) of both the LWV Rhode Island and of Newport County. Ms. Macleish has more than 20 years as a League-trained moderator.
