Deborah McFadden (D) and Lynne Vanderslice (R), candidates for Wilton’s first selectman position, are looking forward to the opportunity to interact with high school students on Thursday, Oct. 22, from 7 to 8 p.m., at the Wilton Historical Society’s First Selectman Candidates Forum.
After introductions by historical society Director Leslie Nolan, each candidate will have 10 minutes for statements. Following their remarks, members of the Wilton High School Model Congress Club will pose questions to the candidates and run the balance of the hour-long event. Wilton High School history teacher and club adviser Kenneth Dunaj has been working with the club to develop and practice parliamentary procedure, debate skills and bill/policy writing. The students will have their questions prepared prior to the Candidates Forum.
