Candidates for offices in November's town election will appear at two public forums sponsored by the League of Women Voters of Westport in the Town Hall auditorium. During each, candidates will be asked questions collected from the audience, then have the opportunity to make closing statements.

The forum tonight (Monday, Oct. 7) will feature the two candidates for first selectman, Democrat Helen Garten and Republican Jim Marpe.

The program is from 7 to 9 p.m. and also will include candidates for selectman, the Planning and Zoning Commission and Zoning Board of Appeals.

A second forum Tuesday, Oct. 15, will include candidates for the Board of Education, Board of Finance and probate judge. That program also is from 7 to 9 p.m.

Both programs will be broadcast live on cable access Channel 79.
