Candidates' night set for March 3

NORTH ANDOVER — The annual Candidates’ Night, featuring those running in the March 25 town election, will take place March 3 at 7 p.m. in the Town Hall.

Every local candidate has been invited to the event, which will be held in the second-floor meeting room. This year’s election offers just one contested race, the competition for two seats on the Board of Selectmen.

The two incumbents, Donald Stewart and Tracy Watson, are being challenged by Adam Sapienza. School Committee members Stanley Limpert and Brian Gross are unopposed in their re-election bids, as is Frank Rossi, who represents North Andover on the Greater Lawrence Regional Technical High School Committee.

Each candidate has been invited to make an opening statement and answer questions. Those who attend can submit questions on cards at the start of the forum. Questions can be emailed in advance of Candidates’ Night. Visit www.northandovercam.org for programming information.

For more information about this event or to submit questions, contact Heather McNeil or Kathy

Stevens, members of the League of Women Voters of Andover/North Andover, at lwvforum@lwv-andovers.org.
