The Wilton League of Women Voters continues its mission to inform voters by co-sponsoring two major voter forums for state and federal candidates.

On Tuesday, October 13th at 7:00 pm, the Wilton League of Women Voters, the Wilton Library Association, and GOOD Morning Wilton will co-sponsor two Ct State legislative candidate debates between Will Haskell (D) and Kim Healy (R/Independent) for Senate District 26 and Stephanie Thomas(D/Working Families) and Patrizia Zucaro(R/Independent) for House District 143.

The Haskell/Healy forum will run from 7:00-8:00pm and the Thomas/Zucaro forum will run from 8:30-9:30pm. Both will be livestreamed from Wilton Library’s Brubeck Room. Please note: following current protocols there will be no live audience in the building. The debate sessions will follow a modified town hall format moderated by Marianne Pollak of the Stamford LWV who will present questions submitted by the public to the candidates.

Questions for Haskell/Healy will be accepted until 7:15pm and questions for Thomas/Zucaro will be accepted until 8:45pm. Here are some important guidelines for submitting questions: anonymous emails will not be accepted; only one question can be submitted per email; all questions must be applicable to all candidates and pertinent to state issues; questions targeted at one specific candidate will not be accepted. All questions will be screened for legibility, duplication, and may be combined or condensed.

GOOD Morning Wilton has arranged to livestream the debates online. They can be viewed live in real time on GOODMorningWilton.com. In addition, the event will be recorded for later viewing at GOODMorningWilton.com, www.wiltonlibrary.org, and elsewhere as available.

Consistent with League guidelines, constituent questions will be screened by LWV (one screener from each major party) for clarity, non-duplication, and applicability to both candidates.
