Meet the Candidates Night will be held on Thursday, March 1, 6:30 – 9pm in the Wakelin Room of the Wellesley Free Library. The event promises to be a lively venue for voters to meet the candidates first-hand, hear their positions on issues of importance to the town, and pose questions directly to them.
Twenty-one candidates are running for eleven Town-wide offices, of which three – Town Clerk, Natural Resources Commission and School Committee – are contested. In addition, eighty candidates are running for Town Meeting, with at least one contested Town Meeting precinct race. The Meet & Greet reception begins at 6:30pm and will be followed by a brief ceremony honoring retired elected officials and the formal Candidates Forum at 7pm. The event is free and open to the public.
