Eighteen candidates from across the state striving to be Connecticut’s next governor will meet in Westport on Saturday, April 21 for a Gubernatorial Forum presented by the League of Women Voters.

The event, to be held at Westport Town Hall from 12:30 p.m. to 2 p.m., will be one of the many attractions of the popular Maker Faire throughout the day.

The Maker Faire, part science fair, part county fair, is an all-ages gathering of tech enthusiasts, crafters, educators, tinkerers, hobbyists, engineers, science clubs, authors, artists, students and commercial exhibitors. This 7th annual event is projected to draw more than 12,000 participants of all ages to Westport.

The Gubernatorial Forum will showcase 18 candidates as they share their thinking and planning for the state. Each candidate will speak, and each will have his or her photo posted with a brief bio on the League’s website by clicking here.

Forum participants — representing Democrats, Republicans, Independents and unaffiliated — include candidates from Bridgeport, Branford, Coventry, Glastonbury, Greenwich, Hartford, Hebron, Newington, New Haven, Norwalk, Riverside, Stamford, Trumbull, West Hartford, Willimantic and Westport.

The League of Women Voters of Westport, now in its 68th year, is a non-partisan political organization which promotes informed and active participation in government and the community. The LWV neither supports nor opposes any political party or candidate.

Visit the League’s website at lwvwestportct.org and Facebook at Westport League of Women Voters.
