Candidate Video Statements available from Weston Media Center

Weston Media Center posted yesterday videotaped candidate statements for contested roles in the May 8 town election. This is the second year Weston Media has done candidate videos. Most candidates took advantage of the chance to introduce themselves to residents, and why they were running for the first time, or for re-election. You can watch these candidate statements here. Please note that while all candidates for contested roles were invited to do videotaped statements, not all took advantage of the offer.

Contested seats are Select Board (1 seat), School Committee (2 seats), Recreation Commission (2 seats), and Board of Health (1 seat). The Library Board of Trustees positions are not contested as there are two candidates for two seats but you can watch the candidates on Weston Media Center as well.

In addition, many candidates have published their platforms either on a personal website, or in print for the Weston Town Crier. Hit your google search for those.

On Thursday, April 29 starting at 7:30 pm, the League of Women Voters will also be holding a Candidate’s Night where you can hear more from those vying for contested seats. Please see the agenda for the timing of each board position–there will be no live questions taken from attendees, but you may submit questions before Thursday. Information at the above link.
