    Westford LWV Candidates’ Night Set For April 25

    Posted on Apr 07 2019

    Thursday, April 25, at 7 p.m.
    Avis Hooper Room at the Roudenbush Community Center,
    65 Main Street, Westford.

    Candidates’ Night, the League’s signature event, is a must-see to get to know the candidates for local office better. All candidates on the May 7th Town election ballot have been invited. Elections are being held for Selectmen, Board of Health, Housing Authority, Library Trustees, Planning Board and School Committee.

    The League welcomes questions from the public. Questions can be submitted online prior to the event at lwv.westford.org and at the event itself. Due to time constraints, not all submitted questions may be asked and the League may combine or edit questions.

    Heather McNeil of the League of Women Voters of Andover-North Andover will be the moderator for the evening.

    Candidates’ Night will be simulcast on WestfordCAT government channel Comcast 9/Verizon 34 and will be rebroadcast on cable as well as available on demand at westfordcat.org.

    To give voters the opportunity to learn even more about the candidates, the League is producing its annual Voters’ Guide featuring background information on the candidates and their responses to two League-posed questions. It will be published before the election in the Westford Eagle and available on the League’s website, lwv.westford.org.

    The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan political organization of women and men that encourages informed and active participation in government and works to increase understanding of major public policy issues. The League does not support or oppose any candidate or political party.

    Celebrating “Westford: A Sense of Community”

    Posted on Feb 09 2019

    February 9, 2019 marks the 40th anniversary of the first showing of the slide-tape show at the Elks Hall in Forge Village. The League is excited to be able to make this moving documentary of the history of Westford as it changed through the years available online for streaming!

    In 1996, a book was created based on the material in the slide-tape show. Westford is available in local businesses (Westford Museum, Muffins on Main), and can now be ordered online.

    Please join us in rediscovering this wonderful work about the history of Westford!

    Posted on Mar 26 2018

    The League of Women Voters of Westford is excited to announce their latest publication, “How Westford Works.”   This document describes all aspects of town government, and is a great way to get to know how your town works. You can find it at League events (such as the upcoming Candidates’ Night on April 26) or online.  It will also be made available at Town Hall and the Library.

    The League would like to thank the committee that started with the idea for this document last year and worked to locate and collect all of the information about the Town of Westford in one place. We hope this will be an invaluable resource for residents both new and old.
