Ridgefield High School welcomed four candidates running for public office to its annual election assembly Tuesday, Oct. 23. Congressman Jim Himes (D) and Connecticut State Senator Toni Boucher (R) as well as their respective challengers, Harry Arora (R) and Will Haskell (D), participated in a candidates’ forum developed for the senior class by the high school’s government and politics teachers.
Encouraging citizenship is a critical component of the Ridgefield High School mission statement. Providing the students with the opportunity to see and hear for themselves each of the candidates is one way the high school teaches students how to make knowledgeable, reasoned decisions that impact society in a positive way - a key goal of the Social Studies Department.
