The League of Women Voters of Sussex County is a non-partisan organization whose mission is to inform, engage and educate the public about local government. Because of that mission, we present candidate forums every two years. This election year we have invited all candidates in contested races in Sussex County to particpate in a candidates forum with their opponent in order to provide the opportunity for them to inform the public of their platform. If one of the candidates declines our invitation, we cannot hold that forum because both sides must be represented.
Candidates from seven races accepted our invitation to participate. On September 11th, a candidates forum was held for the 21st Senate District candidates, Robert Wheatley and Bryant Richardson.
Future forums are scheduled for the following races:
- County Council District 4, Hudson, Rappa
- Representative District 20, Bucchioni, Smouse, Smyk
- Senate District 6, Baker, Lopez
- Representative District 14, Demartino, Schwartzkopf
- County Council District 5, Magee, Rieley
Information on all candidates forums can be found in the website calendar section or click on the race listed to link to the calendar event.
