There will be a forum for Democrats-only on Monday, October 30, at 8:00pm in the Greenwich Town Hall meeting room.
The forum was announced by Sandy Litvack, Democratic candidate for First Selectman.
Litvack said that the forum will include himself, tax collector candidate Howard Richman and Democratic BET candidates Tony Turner, David Weisbrod, Jeff Ramer, Beth Krumeich, Leslie Moriarty and Jill Oberlander.
The forum will not include Selectman candidate, incumbent Drew Marzullo, who lost endorsement from his party after it was revealed recently that he had been arrested for shoplifting in Clinton, CT in August.
Mr. Litvack said the reason for Democrats-only forum is that Peter Tesei “refused to participate” in any public debates beyond the forum sponsored by the Greenwich League of Women Voters at Round Hill Community House.
Specifically, Litvack said Mr. Tesei rejected eight proposed dates for a side-by-side debate.
Peter Tesei, in an email, said that historically candidates respond to debate requests from non-partisan community organizations well in advance of the elections and not from opposing candidates.
Tesei added that as he has been campaigning throughout Greenwich, not a single voter has asked about more debates.
