Come Help with Candidates’ Night!

Mark your calendars: Arlington Candidates’ Night is Wednesday, March 27 at 8 p.m., in person in Town Hall. The event will also be broadcast live on ACMi and shown on cable several times before the election. As always, the LWVA and Envision Arlington co-sponsor the event.

There will be question-and-answer sessions with the candidates for town-wide offices: Select Board, School Committee, Board of Assessors, and Housing Authority. There will also be informal sessions with candidates for Town Meeting before the event, from 7:30 to 8. But it can’t happen without you!

As we did last year, we will be asking people to submit questions for the candidates in advance, to be selected by volunteers from the LWVA and Envision Arlington.

We need volunteers for the following positions:

  • Timers: We need at least four volunteers to keep time during the question-and-answer session, and to hold up time cards to keep all candidates within time limits so everyone gets a fair chance to speak.
  • Greeters: We need at least two volunteers to greet people arriving at Candidates’ Night and provide information about the League.
  • Set-up/Take-down: Help us to put up precinct signs and get other items organized for the event or take down and pack up when the event is over.

Thank you for your help! Contact Angela Olszewski (, 781-648-8649) to sign up.
