5th Congressional District Candidates’ Debate
Tuesday, October 16, 2018
7:00pm (door open at 6:30pm)
The League of Women Voters of Northern Fairfield County, the League of Women Voters of Litchfield County, The News-Times, and The Newtown Bee will co-sponsor a debate.
The event is open to the public.
The candidates will respond to questions proposed by representatives of The News-Times, The Newtown Bee, WLAD, a WCSU media/communications student and the audience. The debate will be recorded for later viewing.
The 5th Congressional District, which includes parts of Fairfield, Hartford, Litchfield, and New Haven Counties, is home to over 715,000 residents of Northwestern Connecticut.
Judith Griemsmann, President of the LWV’s Northern Fairfield County chapter, expects that attendees will view the debate as “a good opportunity to hear what each candidate sees as potential goals and policies for the district, and for the country as a whole.”
