Ashland Planning Board and School Committee Hold Live Candidates’ Forum, May 14
Residents get a chance to ask questions of the candidates before the May 21 town election.
The fifth annual live Candidates’ Forums are sponsored by the Friends of the Library and the civic group, We Love Ashland!
Vanessa Charles and Michael J. Mokey are running for one five-year seat on the Planning Board. The moderator is Sarah Hines, a resident of Ashland since 1977, who has been involved in many town committees, such as the Comprehensive Plan and Weston Nurseries Design Review. Hines is on the practice faculty of Boston Architectural College and an active member of the Congress for the New Urbanism.
Gina Donovan, Mark Larson and Adam Elbirt are running for two three-year seats on the School Committee. Judy Leavey, who most recently served on the town manager search committee and has been an educator in the Framingham public schools for over 30 years, will be the moderator.
The Forums are an opportunity for citizens to meet the candidates and directly ask questions. The organizers believe that residents want to learn about the candidates before casting their vote at the May 21 town election.
