On Saturday, April 30th, HCAM will host our annual contested races debates live from our Studios starting at 6:30pm. HCAM News Director, Tom Nappi will moderate and ask the questions.

We will not be featuring a live audience for the debates this year but invite all community members to watch live on HCAM-TV (Comcast: Channel 8, Verizon Channel 30) or on our youtube page: www.youtube.com/hcamtv.

This year there are 6 contested seats: Constable (2 year term), School Committee (3 year term), School Committee (2 year term), School Committee (1 year term) and Select Board (3 year term).

**Please Note** our first two debates featuring Constable, Housing Authority and School Committee are all cancelled due to unavailability of candidates. These debates will not be made up but candidates will have an opportunity to answer questions in a text format which will be posted to our website.
