It’s election season in the year of COVID-19 and the candidates running to represent Ridgefielders in the state legislature will discuss their candidacies and positions — and take questions from the public — in a virtual forum.
The Ridgefield League of Women Voters and the Ridgefield Library are co-sponsoring a virtual candidates forum via Zoom on Sunday, Oct. 4, at 2 p.m. The forum is expected to include the candidates for the Connecticut Legislature’s 111th House District, Republican Robert Hebert and Democrat Aimee Berger-Girvalo, as well as 138th District’s Kenneth Gucker, a Democrat seeking re-election. (The Republican candidate in the 138th District, Emile Buzaid, declined to participate due to a prior commitment.) Also participating will be the two candidates for the State Senate’s 26th District, which includes Ridgefield, Democrat Will Haskell and Republican Kim Healy.
