From the South Orange-Maplewood Presidents’ Council and League of Women Voters of Maplewood and South Orange:
Candidates for the SOMSD Board of Education will have a debate this Wednesday, October 10th starting at 7:30pm in the District Meeting Room at 525 Academy Street, Maplewood. All 8 candidates for the BOE will be in attendance.
With such a large pool of candidates we have decided to divide them into two groups (randomly selected) to help facilitate a more natural conversation. The first group of four will debate from 7:30pm to approximately 8:15pm and the second group will debate directly after. The candidates will not receive the questions in advance and both groups will be asked the same set of questions. We will also be soliciting questions from the audience in attendance that evening.
The debate will be taped and broadcast on SOMA TV and will also be recorded via Facebook Live on the Village Green Facebook page.
This debate is co-sponsored by the Presidents’ Council and the League of Women Voters of Maplewood and South Orange.
