A "meet the candidates night" is being held in Danbury tonight for residents to learn more about the people who are running for the Board of Education. The event is being sponsored in part by Danbury Children First. Executive Director Linda Kosko says they along with the City Wide PTO have prepared questions for the candidates, who will also take questions from the public if time permits.
The candidates will be asked about their future roles and responsibilities if elected in November. Danbury Board of Education Candidates include Eileen Alberts, Charles Alpuche, Gary Falkenthal, Michael Ferguson, Richard Jannelli, Kathleen Molinaro, Mayra Olavarria, and Ralph Pietrafesa.
The 7 o'clock forum will be held at Broadview Middle School.
If parents need childcare, childcare and homework help is available, and they should RSVP to Executive Director Linda Kosko at (203)797-8088.
