Brookfield will be the site of a Democratic gubernatorial candidate forum next month that will focus on key issues facing the state.
The April 9th event was announced this morning by the Brookfield Democratic Town Committee (BDTC).
Democratic candidates are expected to take part in the forum, which will be at 7 p.m. in the auditorium at Brookfield High School, 45 Long Meadow Hill Road, Brookfield, Connecticut. The list of participants includes:
The forum will be moderated by Professor of Political Science/Social Science at Western Connecticut State University and best-selling author, Dr. Chris Kukk. Candidates will have the opportunity to introduce themselves, followed by a period of questions and answers, led by Dr. Kukk. Questions from the audience will be permitted if time allows.
BDTC Chair Laura Orban said the upcoming forum is, "an important opportunity for Brookfield area residents to hear from the talented group of Democratic candidates on the critical issues facing our state.”
“We’re looking forward to hearing from the gubernatorial candidates on everything from the budget, to education, to climate change, and more. This election has major implications for the future of Connecticut. We don’t want to see a single empty seat in the room.”
The forum is free and open to the public. Seating will begin at 6:30 p.m.
The event will be open to the media. Reserved seating will be available.
