Knowledge is Power, So Come To Our Candidates’ Night!

The Tewksbury Democratic Town Committee is pleased to team up with the Wilmington/Tewksbury Chamber of Commerce and the Republican Town Committee to host a debate and meet the candidates night at Tewksbury Town Hall on Thursday, March 14, 2019, starting at 6:30 p.m.

Candidates for Selectman, School Committee and Board of Health are invited to participate, and the event will be open to residents, press and interested parties. Tom Zuppa, senior editor of The Sun of Lowell and Sentinel & Enterprise of Fitchburg, will be lead moderator. Tom will be joined by Bill Gilman of Your Tewksbury Today and a student journalist from Tewksbury Memorial High School.

Why are we working with our Republican counterparts? Because we believe it is vital that voters have as many opportunities as possible to make an informed decision, given the opportunities and challenges facing Tewksbury. We hope that by bringing the two town committees together along with the business community, we will maximize the number of residents paying attention to this important election.

The public is invited to submit questions via the event Facebook page or through Twitter with the hashtag: #TewksburyCandidatesNight.

For those who cannot attend, the event will be broadcast live by Tewksbury Telemedia on public access channels (8 for Comcast, 33 for Verizon) and recorded for later viewing.


The Tewksbury Democratic Town Committee is the local arm of the state and national Democratic Party. As an active group, we support candidates at the regional, state and national levels. We offer many chances to get involved and meet candidates, including our annual Unity Breakfast, canvassing and sign holding, encouraging voter registration and participation in town events, sponsoring candidates’ nights and forums so voters have the opportunity to hear candidates’ positions on important issues, and holding regular meetings and social events.

Want to get involved? We welcome new members who are registered Democrats and residents of Tewksbury. We have 35 elected members plus 20-year members and a large and growing roster of associate members, who receive preference when an opening arises on the committee. Members of the Democratic State Committee residing in the town are also members. We have four to six regular meetings per year as well as one or more socials during the summer and an annual breakfast in September.
