On June 24, 2017, Newton Forum and the Newton Villages Alliance co-sponsored a forum with mayoral candidates Amy Mah Sangiolo, Ruthanne Fuller, and Scott Lennon. These three, all current city councilors, were the only candidates certified to be on the ballot as of the forum date, although there are four other candidates who deserve to be considered, and who have participated in subsequent fora.
The event was held at the Windsor Club in Waban with a live audience in attendance. The candidates answered questions in sections divided by topic. Newton residents conversant in those issues asked the questions in each topic area.
Here at Newton Forum, we’re glad we were able to make this particular mayoral forum happen, as we think the questions asked and answers given are unusually specific and very interesting. We hope you agree. Please watch, and let us know your reactions and which candidate resonated the most with your preferences for the future of our community.
