Call for Questions for First Selectman Debate

The Barkhamsted Women’s Club is organizing a debate for the First Selectman candidates.  The debate will be held on October 30, 2017 at 7 p.m. at The Barkhamsted School at 65 Ripley Road.

We welcome questions from residents.  Each person may submit multiple questions. Please submit your question(s) to Barkhamsted.debate@gmail.com or to BWC, PO Box 362, Pleasant Valley, CT 06063 by midnight October 17, 2017.

All questions received will be grouped by topic and questions regarding the top topics will be asked as time allows.  Therefore, it is important that you submit your question(s) of interest even if you know that another resident has already submitted a question on the topic.  Submitting a question is your way to vote for the questions to be asked. Note that your question may be combined with others on the same topic and paraphrased.

All candidates will respond to the same questions.

Reminder: questions must be received by midnight October 17, 2017 via email or US postal service.

Thank you for your participation,

The Barkhamsted Women’s Club
