ALN Candidate Forums and Responses

The Alliance for a Livable Newport (ALN) has posted responses to numerous questions candidates for both the Newport City Council and School Committee. The questions were posed by ALN and the community in advance of the public forums that will be held in October. Citizens can read the responses at newportalliance.org to assist in decision making for the Nov. 6 election. All 21 candidates in contested races have taken time to address how they would deal with many of these challenges.

In addition to reviewing the written responses, citizens are encouraged to attend the three public forums in October where the candidates will address additional questions posed by ALN in person. A nonpartisan organization, ALN has been holding election-year forums since 2010 to assist Newporters in learning more about the candidates and to help make informed decisions for whom to vote.
