The best way to weigh the pros and cons of political candidates is to listen to them in person. Westonites have that opportunity with two of the three men who want to represent them in Connecticut’s General Assembly.
The Democratic and Republican candidates for the 135th House District — that’s the part of the state that includes all of Weston and Easton and part of Redding — are meeting for a debate run by the League of Women Voters of Weston this Saturday morning, Oct. 13, from 10:30 to 12:30 at the Weston Public Library. There is also a Green Party candidate running, but he declined the invitation to participate. Weston voters should make every effort to attend.
When it comes to local politics, debates are not about slick maneuvering or out-performing the other guy. They are about candidates making their cases clearly for what they believe in and why those beliefs and their life experience makes one of them the best person to represent the community.
These are your neighbors running for office, and this is your chance to meet them and to find out which one best reflects your opinions and values when it comes to life in this part of the state.
Bravo to the League of Women Voters for bringing this very important forum to Weston on Saturday.
