School Board candidate forum generates enthusiastic response

Did you miss the September 27 Grosse Pointe School Board candidate forum? You can now watch the recording right here on the LWVGP’s YouTube channel.

About 250 people turned out in person at the Brownell Middle School Auditorium for the League of Women Voters of Grosse Pointe-sponsored candidate forum – the first in-person forum since the pandemic began. Hundreds more viewed it on live stream.

All 10 candidates fielded questions, drawn from some 200 submitted online. Lauri Read, vice president, Voter Services, introduced the program, which was moderated by LWVGP President Sue Acton.

You can also view the program throughout the weekend on the Grosse Pointe Public School System’s Educational Access channel (Comcast 20 and WOW 15) at noon and 9 p.m.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Policy

The League of Women Voters, in both its values and practices, affirms its belief and commitment to diversity and inclusion. LWV recognizes that diverse perspectives are important and necessary for responsible and representative decision-making, and subscribes to the belief that diversity and inclusion are fundamental to the values it upholds. Inclusiveness enhances the organization’s ability to respond more effectively to changing conditions and needs, and therefore, LWV will in both principles and practices promote the inclusion in participation in any activity of LWV all persons whatever their gender, race, socio-economic status, creed, age, sexual orientation, national origin or disability.
