Free and open to the public, Fairfield’s League of Women Voters will host its annual Legislative Forum on the campus of Fairfield University, featuring a panel of elected state officials and an audience Q and A.

Mark your calendar for the annual League of Women Voters of Fairfield, Conn. Legislator’s Forum, on Saturday, January 25, from 10:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m., at Fairfield University’s Dolan School of Business Event Hall. Doors open at 9:30 a.m. and coffee and light refreshments will be served. This event is free and open to the public.

At the annual event, State Representatives Laura Devlin (R) and Cristin McCarthy Vahey (D), along with State Senator Tony Hwang (R), will discuss priorities facing the upcoming legislative session, their own priorities and goals for the legislative committees on which they serve, and the impact these will have on Fairfield.

The panel will also feature either Brian Farnen (R) or Jennifer Leeper (D), depending on who wins the January 14 special election for the House of Representatives District 132 seat previously held by Fairfield First Selectwoman Brenda Kupchick. The audience will have the opportunity to ask questions that reflect the Fairfield League of Women Voters’ and local legislative priorities.

State Senator Tony Hwang represents Connecticut’s 28th Senatorial District, which includes the towns of Easton, Fairfield, Newtown, Weston, and Westport. State Representative Laura Devlin represents the 134th Assembly District, covering Fairfield and Trumbull. State Representative Cristin McCarthy Vahey serves Fairfield's 133rd Assembly District.

The Legislative Forum is free and open to the public. Fairfield League of Women Voters Co-President Bryce Perry will serve as moderator of the event.

The League of Women Voters was founded in 1920 during the convention of the National American Woman Suffrage Association, six months before the 19th amendment to the U.S. Constitution was ratified, giving women the right to vote.
