New London Landmarks to host mayoral candidate forum
New London — New London Landmarks on Wednesday will host a forum for mayoral candidates in the community room of the Public Library of New London, 63 Huntington St.
The forum will run from 6:30 to 7:45 p.m.
“Under New London’s strong mayor form of government, a mayor’s approach to economic development and historic preservation can affect a city for generations,” Laura Natusch, executive director of New London Landmarks, said in a statement.
“This forum will provide voters an opportunity to hear all three mayoral candidates’ views on topics related to preservation and development, including protecting and developing historic buildings, preparing for climate change and acknowledging difficult aspects of our history,” she said.
The forum will be moderated by attorney Scott Sawyer. It is free and open to the public, with no advance registration required and is sponsored by Fiddleheads Food Cooperative.
