The following Voters Guide was compiled by the Weston League of Women Voters ("WestonLWV"). Candidates for the Nov. 5 municipal election will be asked to answer a general question, and to provide a brief biography and photo. The WestonLWV is a non-partisan volunteer organization, which encourages active and informed participation of citizens in government, seeks to increase understanding of public policy issues, and influences public policy through education and advocacy.
The Weston League sponsors public forums at which voters may see and hear candidates discuss the issues; holds open meetings such as “Speak Up” (each year since 1992, generally on the first Saturday in February), where the people ask government officials whatever they may want to discuss; and studies and takes action on issues on which the membership has developed a position by consensus of the membership.
The League does not support or oppose any political party or candidate.
The Weston League publishes informative brochures for Westonites, in particular the “Know Your Town Directory.” It is available online, or in print at the Library or at Weston Town Hall, and is updated after local elections.
