The 2022 Connecticut gubernatorial candidates are coming to The Westport Library.
Republican challenger Bob Stefanowski and incumbent Governor Ned Lamont will be visiting the Library’s Trefz Forum for a pair of candidate forums, presented by the Library and the Y’s Men of Westport/Weston.
Stefanowski’s forum will take place on Thursday, September 15, at 10 am, with Lamont arriving on Monday, September 19, at 1 pm. The candidates will speak and take questions from attendees, with each event running approximately 45 minutes.
The Trefz Forum has a capacity of roughly 400, and the talks also will be live streamed, offering unlimited virtual viewers. Registration is requested for both events — and for both the in-person talk and the livestream.
Details and registration are available on The Westport Library website.
“We are delighted to have both Mr. Stefanowski and Governor Lamont at the Library to address our patrons and area residents,” said Bill Harmer, executive director of The Westport Library. “We believe strongly in our role as a hub for the community and as a place where everyone can learn, grow, and engage in lively and respectful debate. And afterward, we hope you stick around to take advantage of all the resources our Library has to offer.”
“This is another example of the quality talks the Y’s Men bring to its membership and now, with The Westport Library, to the community as well,” Y’s Men President Baxter Urist said.
Attendees must arrive 15 minutes prior to each session and are invited to submit brief written questions for the candidates to address.
The 2022 gubernatorial election and statewide and local elections will be held Tuesday, November 8.
