Westborough – Candidates for elective office in the town of Westborough will take part in a Candidates Forum sponsored by the Westborough Democratic Town Committee on Sunday, Feb. 24 at 6 p.m. at the Willows, 1 Lyman St.

Kate Donaghue, the chair of the sponsoring committee, noted that candidates for the Board of Selectman, School Committee, Planning Board, Housing Authority and Library Trustee have all been invited to participate.

“Most candidates are planning to take part.? We very much appreciate the citizens who serve the town so generously and who take the time meet with voters at Candidates Night,” Donaghue said.

The Democratic Committee sponsors this event annually as a service to the town and to encourage voters to become participants in the election process, Donahue said.

If anyone who is running and has not been in touch with me and would like to take part, please contact me at 508-404-8531,” Donaghue said.
