BRATTLEBORO—Brattleboro Community Television and The Commons will present a Selectboard Candidates’ Forum on Wednesday, Feb. 19, from 6:30 to 8 p.m., in the Selectboard Meeting Room on the second floor of the Municipal Center, 230 Main St.
The program will be broadcast live on BCTV Channel 10. It will also stream live at brattleborotv.org as well as on Facebook. Randolph T. Holhut, news editor of The Commons, will moderate.
The three candidates for a three-year seat — current board member Elizabeth McLoughlin, Rikki Risatti (who is also running for a one-year seat), and incumbent David Schoales — are expected to appear.
The other candidates for two one-year seats — Kurt Daims, Ian Goodnow, Oscar Heller, and incumbent Daniel Quipp — are also expected to participate.
McLoughlin, elected along with Quipp last year to a one-year selectboard seat, chose to pursue the three-year seat held by Schoales. Heller ran for a one-year seat last year. Daims, Goodnow, and Risatti are all running for the selectboard for the first time.
Audience questions for the candidates may be submitted in person on a 3x5 notecard during the forum in the Selectboard Room, or submitted as comments on Facebook Live during the forum.
