How We Can Help the Environment and Our Community
Election Day is Tuesday, November 2!
To help Wilton voters make an educated choice in the upcoming municipal election, the Wilton League of Women Voters, along with our co-sponsors the Wilton Library and GOOD Morning Wilton will host two events at which voters will hear from candidates running for positions on the Board of Selectmen, the Board of Education, the Board of Finance, and the Planning and Zoning Commission.
These forums will bring together on one stage the candidates in four contested races to provide an opportunity for voters to pose questions and hear from the candidates who will be making critical town decisions in upcoming years.
On Wednesday, Oct. 20, the forum will feature the candidates running for the Board of Education and Planning & Zoning. On Monday, Oct. 25, the forum will feature the candidates running for the Board of Selectmen and the Board of Finance. Both events will start at 7 p.m. with a very brief break between the two panels for each evening, ending at 9:15 p.m.
Both events will follow a modified town hall format and both will be moderated by League of Women Voters-certified, out-of-town moderators who will present questions submitted by the public in written form. GOOD Morning Wilton will live-stream the events from Wilton Library’s Brubeck Room.
"COVID has shone a spotlight on the fact that women are the shock absorbers for society's crises."

Women’s voices have been heard! The data study results are in. Covid-19 has directly made an impact on women’s lives: their employment, pay, healthcare, mental health, safety, education, career, housing and food security.
You are invited to attend an important discussion and to learn the economic impact of Covid-19 on Connecticut women on Thursday, May 13th at 7:00 pm. Guest speaker, Tina Courpas, Executive Director of the Permanent Commission on the Status of Women in Connecticut, will discuss the findings of the impact of the pandemic on significant issues in women’s lives. The PCSW was formed in 2016 as a continuation of the original state agency to provide expert research on key areas, carry out initiatives, and provide outreach in areas that are significant to women in Ct. PCSW is a “bipartisan organization with a non-partisan mandate, reflecting the broad diversity of Connecticut’s women.”
The League of Women Voters is a non-partisan organization that strives for an informed and engaged community. It specifically encourages active voter participation and works to increase understanding of government and major public policy issues. Working Moms of Wilton is a “virtual sisterhood”, online community of approximately 1,300 women, and source of important information for the working moms of Wilton.
The League of Women Voters, a non-partisan political organization open to all, not only encourages informed active participation in government, but also works to increase the understanding of major public policy issues.
