The League of Women Voters of Sussex County will host a public forum for the candidates for the state office of State Representative from the 20th District on November 1st at 5pm at the Milton Library.
Candidates running for the office are Dallas A. Wingate (Republican), and Stell Parker Selby (Democrat). Following brief opening statements by the candidates, the candidates will answer written questions from the audience. Note cards and pencils for posing questions will be available at the door and from monitors in the aisles throughout the program.

Voters can go to the website and compare the candidates’ views on such challenges as reducing greenhouse gas emissions, curbing gun violence, right of privacy to make reproductive choices, and ensuring quality healthcare at affordable cost.
