Candidate Forums on local TV
One forum featuring candidates running for seats on the Hopewell Valley Regional Board of Education and another forum for municipal candidates in Hopewell Township and Pennington will be broadcast on Comcast channel 19 and Verizon channel 32 beginning this weekend.
The candidate night forums, hosted annually by the Hopewell Valley League of Women Voters, are being taped this week by students at Hopewell Valley Central High School. Questions for candidates were submitted by local residents on the League's website. The school board forum will begin airing this Friday, October 18, at 6:00 pm. It will air Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 6:00 pm, and Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays at 8:00 am until the election.
The forum featuring candidates for two of the Valley's municipal governing bodies begins airing Saturday, October 19, at 8:00 am. It will be broadcast Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 8:00 am, and Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays at 6:00 pm until the election. Since there is no contest for seats in Hopewell Borough, those candidates were not invited to participate in this year's municipal forum.
