Four candidates for the Madison Board of Education will field questions from audience members, as well as give opening and closing statements, at a candidate forum to be held Thursday night in the Madison High School library, according to an announcement from the group hosting the event.
The Morristown Area League of Women Voters is hosting the forum, scheduled for 7 to 8:30 p.m.
Three seats on the eight-member board are up for election. Incumbents Lisa Ellis and Kevin Blair are running for re-election, while Brenda Catalanello is vying for one of the two, three-year seats. Board member Linda Gilbert is running unopposed to be elected to the remaining year of a term she was appointed to fill in November.
Written and oral questions can be submitted by audience members and Louise Murray of Morristown, a League of Women Voters trained moderator, will preside over the event, the announcement says.
The public is invited and encouraged to attend. The Morristown Area League of Women Voters says it is nonprofit, non-partisan and does not support or oppose any political party or candidate. For more information about the forum call 973-267-0896.
