Swansea voters meet school board and selectmen candidates ahead of annual town election

With Swansea’s Annual Town Election coming up on April 8, voters were able to hear candidates for town offices pitch themselves on Wednesday, tackling topics from the incoming superintendent to the controversial municipal complex proposal that was soundly rejected in November. 


Swansea's Meet the Candidates Night, lasting over two and a half hours at Joseph Case High School, introduced voters to candidates for several town offices.  


Hosted by businessman Carl Sawejko, the event saw School Committee and Board of Selectmen hopefuls given two minutes each for opening and closing statements and to respond to questions posed by the moderator, retired journalist Bill Hall. 


The full event was streamed live online, and is available on the town’s Vimeo channel,
