At a press conference on July 29, 2009, Michael J. Freda, the Republican nominee for the Office of First Selectman in the Town of North Haven, challenged the incumbent to a series of live and unscripted debates at several venues around town. The debates will focus on economic development, education/quality of life and town services.
The debates are scheduled as follows:
Monday, September 28th, 7-8 p.m. at the North Haven High School—featuring economic development
Friday, October 2nd, 7-8 p.m. at North Haven Middle School—featuring education/quality of life issues
Monday, October 5th, 7-8 p.m. at the Recreation Center—featuring town services
Mr. Freda invites the public to attend these forums as an educational opportunity to learn and share ideas about the future of the North Haven community. He encourages everyone to bring his or her questions and participate in an informative exchange. He stated, “In the past, I appreciated the televised debates but felt that they were limited in scope, the questions were known to the candidates in advance, and they did not allow the North Haven community the opportunity to attend and participate. To open the process to the electorate, my campaign committee organized these opportunities.” He continued, “I believe strongly that these settings will produce a more thoughtful and informative process, and the voters can hear the candidates speak from the heart, not from prepared statements. In addition, there are several dates available for the convenience of the voters.”
