With its mission to promote informed voting, the League of Women Voters of Canton will again host Candidates’ Forum on Tuesday, Oct. 18 from 7 to 9 p.m. at Canton High School, 76 Simonds Ave. The event will feature candidates who seek to represent Canton in the November 8 elections for the Connecticut House and Senate. Senator Kevin Witkos (R) and his Democratic opponent, David Pena, will attend, along with Representative Tim LeGeyt (R) who is running unopposed. Candidates for the U.S. House of Representative and U.S Senate have been invited. Candidates will make presentations and answer questions from the League of Women Voters and the audience.

It recently completed a study of mental health services in the Farmington Valley. The League welcomes new members. Men and women of all political parties or unaffiliated are invited. “Know Your Town,” the mental health study and membership information are all available at the League of Women Voters of Canton’s new website:  http://lwvcanton.org
