2014 candidates night: Thursday April 10
Each year, the Foxboro Jaycees host a forum at Foxboro Cable Access to allow each candidate for the upcoming election (selectman, town clerk, board of health, housing authority, etc.) To speak to the public, introduce or re-introduce themselves, take questions and express their qualifications and reasons for running for office. The forum is broadcast live and rebroadcast repeatedly up to Election Day.
The Jaycees are proud to present this forum so that the voters of Foxboro have an opportunity to meet the candidates running for public office, and to hear their views on the issues that are relevant to the positions that they are seeking.
The program will be repeated numerous times over the next two weeks: Friday, April 11, at 10 p.m.; Saturday – Sunday, April 12-13, at 3 a.m. Monday-Tuesday, April 14-15, at 3 a.m., noon and 8 p.m.; Wednesday, April 16, at 3 a.m. and noon; and Saturday – Monday, April 19-21, at 4:30 a.m., 1:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m.
Exact dates and times will be listed in the Program Schedule which runs alternately with programming in the Channel8/39 Bulletin Board, and can also be found on the FCA website: www.fcatv.org. The program will also be available in the Video Gallery for viewing anytime on the FCA website.
On behalf of the Foxboro Jaycees, thank you to everyone who made 2014 Candidates night a success. Thank you to Michael Webber, Lauren Bitar, Michael Everson, Bob Lomus, Neil Kaiser, Mike Stewart, Matt Shea, Jess Todd, and everyone at Foxboro Cable Access for everything they do. Their professionalism is evident in all aspects of the production.
Thank you to Monica Fisler for being our timer.
Thank you to Frank Mortimer of the Sun Chronicle/Foxboro Reporter for attending the event and asking thought-provoking questions of the candidates – we could never have this event without such an excellent journalist.
Thank you to all of the candidates who participated. Running unopposed or in a contested race, all of you demonstrated a love of this town and a sincere desire to serve this community. No matter where you stand on any issue, no matter your ideology, you all should be so proud to know you make a difference. Running for any office takes courage and personal sacrifice, and our town appreciates your example of great community service, win or lose.
Finally, to the voters of Foxboro, for over twenty years the Jaycees have put on this event to assist you in making informed choices. Please watch the broadcast on FCA (or their web site www.fcatv.org), read the newspapers, visit the candidate web sites, follow the candidates and learn where they stand on the issues that matter to you. BE INFORMED.
Per our bylaws, the Jaycees cannot endorse any candidate, but we do encourage you to cherish your sacred privilege of VOTING – and encourage you to go to the polls and VOTE this May 5.
