Candidates Night Forum 2017

St. John’s Congregational Church, in collaboration with the Massachusetts Women of Color Coalition and the Association of Black Business and Professionals, is hosting a “New Candidates Forum” for individuals running for the Springfield School Committee and the Springfield City Council.

The Forum is scheduled for Monday, August 21, 2017, 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. at St. John’s Congregational Church located at 45 Hancock Street in Springfield.

This forum targets new candidates who have not previously held elected office on the Springfield School Committee nor the Springfield City Council. The forum will create an opportunity for those seeking elected office to present their platforms, respond to topics related to the position, and have access to potential voters. The forum will be recorded and shown on social networks and local access television.

What is a candidate’s forum?
A candidate’s forum allows candidates for public office to express their views openly so audience members can understand their positions and make informed voting choices.
