There will be a District 2 City Council candidates forum this Thursday, Oct. 10, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Main Library (Lexington Street). The evening will feature candidates from both District 2 and District 9.
There will be another forum on Monday, Oct. 28 from 6 to 8:30 p.m. for District 8 and At-Large City Council Candidates.
The forums are being sponsored by the League of Women Voters of Framingham and MetroWest Daily News.
Forums will be run by a moderator from outside Framingham and will include written questions from the audience. If you would like to submit a question in advance, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
All the candidates forums are being held in the Costin Room of the main library (instead of locations closer to neighborhood voters) because “it allows us to record each of these events for quick public viewing on Access Framingham,” according to Jim Pillsbury, Voter Services Chair for the Framingham League.
Richard A. Finlay and Cesar Stewart-Morales are running for the District 2 seat being vacated by Councilor Pam Richardson. There are three candidates in the race for two city-wide At-Large seats: incumbent George P. King Jr., Janet Leombruno, and Gloria Pascual. Councilor Cheryl Tully Stoll is not seeking re-election.

- Districts 2 and 9 Thursday, Oct. 10 from 6:30-8:30 pm
