The town of Lisbon will host a candidates forum Tuesday from 6 to 7 p.m. at the town office, prior to the 7 p.m. town council meeting. 

The forum is for contested races only and will only include the School Committee and Water Commission races. 

Candidates running for the School Committee are Kimberly  Labbe-Poisson, Richard Nadeau and Ross Cunningham.

The two candidates vying for the Water Commission are Arthur McLean and Roger Bickford.

The candidates will each be given the opportunity to provide a one-minute opening statement and then candidates will be asked a series of identical questions. All answers are limited to one minute. Candidates then have one minute to provide a summation. 

Members of the audience will then get a chance to ask questions. Audience members are not permitted to make speeches for candidates.

The set of prepared questions candidates will answer include:

• What are your qualifications for the office you seek?

• What motivated you to run for the office you seek?

• Do you have sufficient time/energy to devote to this position?

• With one or two meetings a month, all boards are limited in what they can accomplish, how should the board decide what is most important?

• Think of an issue facing Lisbon that you care about. Do you have a positive solution you want to bring forth?
