With primary elections for Governor and State Legislature quickly approaching, what’s the most efficient way to question candidates?

League of Women Voters logoChris Daggett , CEO of the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation, will help tackle that one in a free talk, CONFRONTATION….OR CONVERSATION: Restoring Civil Discourse to Politics, at 7 pm on Wednesday, May 17, 2017, at the Thomas Jefferson School in Morristown.

The two-hour panel discussion is sponsored by the League of Women Voters of the Morristown Area and the Morristown Alumnae Chapter of  Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc.

Joining Daggett, a former independent candidate for governor, will be Gordon MacInnes, a former state legislator who serves as president of New Jersey Policy Perspective, and Katherine R. Abbott, a member of the state League of Women Voters and former Chatham Township committeewoman.

The conversation will center on challenges candidates and representatives face when discussing controversial issues, and how they control the tone of these interactions.  

In preparation for upcoming elections, attendees will hear suggestions on what to demand of candidates as controversial subjects surface.

The school is at James Street and Ogden Place.
