Text Candidates Forum: Education in Pennsylvania over blurred image of audience

All Bucks County State House candidates are invited to forum on education

 The NAACP Bucks County Branch and the League of Women Voters of Bucks County have partnered with Bucks County Community College to host a first-ever State House of Representatives candidates forum on the topic of education. All 20 candidates running for the 10 state house districts in Bucks County have been invited to take part in the live, non-partisan forum, slated for 7 p.m. Thursday, September 12, at the College’s Newtown Campus. The forum, focused on the topic of education in Pennsylvania, will be moderated by the College’s longtime social science faculty member Bill Pezza who will pose questions solicited from the public in the weeks leading up to the forum. The “Candidates Forum: Education in Pennsylvania” will be open to the public and streamed live on the College’s YouTube channel. “This is an exciting and extraordinary opportunity to hear Pennsylvania State Representative candidates discuss their views about education,” said Karen Downer, President of the NAACP Bucks County Branch. “Our members as well as the public in general always want to know more about who their candidates are and what their thoughts are on issues that are important to them and their families, and education is a critical topic in the Bucks County community.” Voters who wish to hear directly from the candidates are strongly encouraged to contact those running in their district and urge them to take part. The candidates and district boundaries are listed below. “The mission of the League of Women Voters is to empower voters and defend democracy,” said Liz Fritsch, Candidate Forum Chair, League of Women Voters of Bucks County. “One of the most effective ways of empowering voters is to provide them with non-partisan, unbiased information about where candidates stand on the issues. This event allows voters to hear from the candidates themselves about the important issue of education.” Kevin Antoine, the College’s Associate Vice President of External Affairs and Chief Diversity Officer, pointed out that Bucks County Community College encourages free speech and debate for all residents as part of its mission. “As the only public college in the county, Bucks County Community College believes civic engagement is fundamental to the survival of a democracy,” said Antoine. “Candidates from all backgrounds should be able to engage in dialogue without fear of reprisal from the government. Debates and public forums like these strengthen free speech and expand equal opportunity.” The “Candidates Forum: Education in Pennsylvania” takes place in the Zlock Performing Arts Center, located on the Newtown Campus of Bucks County Community College at 275 Swamp Rd., Newtown, Pa. Admission and parking are free. The event will also be streamed live at starting at 7 p.m. EDT Thursday, September 12.
