Forum will engage candidates for Windham Southeast School Board

BRATTLEBORO — The Commons and the Brattleboro Reformer will host a forum for candidates vying for seats on the Windham Southeast School Board.

The forum will be held this year via Zoom and a call-in number on Monday, Feb. 27 at 6:30 p.m.

The goal is to offer voters an opportunity to get to know the candidates before the four district towns - Guilford, Brattleboro, Putney, and Dummerston - go to the polls on Tuesday, March 7.

Cindy Jerome, Dummerston town moderator, will moderate the forum.

Each participating candidate will be given five minutes for an opening statement, and all candidates will answer questions from the two journalists on the panel, Melanie Winters, the Reformer's news editor, and Jeff Potter, editor-in-chief of The Commons.

As time permits, the forum will invite questions from the audience. Voters can submit questions in advance to [email protected].

BCTV will broadcast the forum and will make the video available at its website,
