Stamford residents will get one more chance to evaluate the mayoral candidates on October 29th. Democrat David Martin, Republican Michael Pavia and the Green Party’s Rolf Maurer have agreed to face off at 7:00 p.m. in the auditorium of the main branch of The Ferguson Library, where the Stamford League of Women Voters and the Stamford Advocate are co-sponsoring the final debate of the campaign. The event is open to the public.

Jara Barnett, president of the League of Women Voters of Connecticut, will moderate the three-way debate, during which each candidate will respond to questions from a panel of reporters and the audience. The local LWV has also co-hosted debates for the 4th Congressional District race and for the 36th State Senate seat.

“We believe voter awareness is vital to good government,” said Allison Rodney, co-president of the Stamford League. “The city faces a number of challenges right now. This debate should further clarify the candidates’ positions and allow informed voters to help determine our future course.”

“The Advocate is very pleased to help provide Stamford voters with more information in this vitally important election, and particularly pleased to be doing so in collaboration with the League of Women Voters,” said David McCumber, editor of the Advocate.

Live streaming of the debate will be available on The Advocate website: www.stamfordadvocate.com.

The League of Women Voters, a nonpartisan political organization, encourages informed and active participation in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influences public policy through education and advocacy. Membership in the League is open to men and women of all ages. More information about the Stamford LWV can be found at www.lwvstamford.org.
