As a public service, Alliance for a Livable Newport once again this year hosted local public forums where candidates for City Council and School Committee answered tough questions concerning issues they will face if elected to public office.

These candidate forums, moderated by officers of the Rhode Island League of Women Voters, were designed to help voters make informed decisions about which candidates they will support in the November election.
