The five candidates for the three open seats on the Verona Town Council fielded 90 minutes of questions on affordable housing, infrastructure, the impending rewrite of the township’s master plan and more at theJunior Women’s Club of Verona’s virtual candidate forum on Monday, April 26.
The Juniors collected questions from the community and provided a list of possible questions to candidates in advance, but they did not notify them which specific questions would be asked. Shannon Curtin, the Juniors’ president, introduced the candidates and the event was moderated by the League of Women Voters.
The five candidates–Cynthia Holland, Jason Hyndman, Jack McEvoy, Michael Nochimson and Christopher Tamburro–fielded many of the same questions as in their interviews with MyVeronaNJ.com, on issues from affordable housing to infrastructure and zoning. Many of their answers expanded on their earlier remarks, offering additional perspective on how they could, and would, govern Verona.

Kudos to the organizers (Juniors always do a great job) and our youth behind the Young Voters Forum. The questions were different and covered equally important questions – though I’m sure if time allowed, we’d have heard even more from the latest one.
