The League of Women Voters of the Greater Princeton Area hosted the Montgomery Township Committee Candidates Forum in Skillman on October 4. Sponsored by Central New Jersey Network (CNJN) and The Montgomery News, the league conducted the 90-minute forum.
Montgomery Township Committee candidates from left: Patricia Taylor Todd (D), Marion Sanders (R), Pam Booth (R), and Dennis Ahn (D) at the CNJN studio in Skillman on October 3.
All four candidates running for Montgomery Township Committee participated in the forum. The two candidates running for one 3-year-term are: Democratic candidate Patricia Taylor Todd (incumbent) is running against Republican Candidate Pam Booth. The two candidates running for the one-year-term are: Marion Sanders of the Republican party running against Dennis Ahn (incumbent) of the Democratic party.
The Montgomery Township Committee has five members. Usually, a term lasts for three years. This year, a committee member had to resign for health reasons, so one of the open seats on the ballot is for a one-year-term.
The League of Women Voters is a national organization that takes no position on candidates for public office, or on political parties. Its goal is to encourage the informed and active participation of citizens in government.
Candidates’ forums are a key element of the league’s mission to promote an informed and engaged electorate. They are opportunities for voters to learn about who will be on their ballots. The forum was broadcast live on Facebook, and available on demand at cnjn.org and at TheMontyNews.org. ■
