Press Release 10/2/19

(Kent, Connecticut) – On Saturday, October 19 at 1:00 p.m. the Kent Memorial Library will host a Civil Dialogue with the Kent First Selectman Candidates at Town Hall, Kent, CT. Join us in welcoming the two candidates, Jean Speck and Edward Matson to discuss their platforms and plans for Kent.

In preparation for the event the Library is soliciting a series of questions from Kent residents for both candidates to answer. Questions may be dropped off at the Library or collected at the event.

This event will be moderated by a member of the League of Women Voters of Litchfield County and co-sponsored by the Lakeville Journal. In order to have an orderly event the following rules will be in place: Campaign materials will be left outside the debate room. There will be no pro-candidate clothing or buttons allowed in the room. There will be no interruptions from the audience and clapping will be saved for the end. All questions will be from the audience and be written on cards that the Ushers will distribute. The cards will then be handed to the Screeners who will hand to Moderator.

“We thought hosting this event would be an opportunity for the people of Kent to hear what the candidates’ plans and ideas are if elected First Selectman,” says Library Director Sarah Marshall. “We hope the Library can help bring the town together to look toward the future,” she adds.

The program is free and open to the public. Due to limited seating, you must register. Call the Library 860-927-3761, email, online at or at the Library.

The Kent Memorial Library’s mission is to enrich the lives of individuals and the community by providing materials, programs, and services to encourage reading, learning and imagination. The Library is located at 32 North Main Street, Kent, Connecticut. Visit for more information.
