News, schools, and views from a uniquely Lowell perspective

Upcoming candidate forums

With the Congressional race hitting the finish line this Tuesday (don’t forget to vote!), it is time to sharpen the focus on local politics. There are several forums in the next few weeks to help you make up your mind what boxes to check off on Election Day (November 6th). NOTE: THIS INFO HAS BEEN UPDATED and was orginally posted incorrectly.

1)  For School Committee only:  The Citywide Parent Council (make sure to check out their updated website, it looks great!) will host its traditional School Committee Canidates’ Forum tomorrow night – Monday, October 15, 7:00 pm, in the Little Theater at Lowell High School.  This event will be televised live by Channel 22, Lowell Educational Television.  Audience members can submit questions and those watching from home will be able to email questions to lowellcpc@comcast.net

2)  For School Committee:  the Lowell Sun will host a school committee roundtable discussion on Thursday, October 18, beginning at 7 p.m. as part of their web talk show with editor Jim Campanini.

3)  For City Council and School Committee:  The United Teachers of Lowell and the Merrimack Valley Labor Council will hold a forum for both races on Monday, October 22, 7 pm, in the Little Theater at Lowell High, broadcast live by LET Channel 22.
