2021 Grafton School Board Candidate Interviews

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, our usual candidate forum format has changed.

The LWVOZ hosted separate candidate interviews for the three Grafton School Board Candidates running for the two open seats. Candidates Jerry Rossi (incumbent), Shawn Taylor, and Mary Widmann each recorded an interview. The interviews were recorded via Zoom on March 16th.

Community members and LWV members submitted 27 questions. These questions were reviewed and collated by theme/topic resulting in 8 questions used in the interviews. Each candidate was asked the same questions. Mary Fran Lepeska and Allison Antoine (LWVOZ members) were the moderator and timekeeper.

Please watch each of the candidate interviews below and remember to vote on April 6th!

Incumbent Jerry Rossi:

Shawn Taylor:

Mary Widmann:

The LWVOZ would like to thank each of the candidates for their willingness to run for public office and for their time to record these candidate interviews.

The views expressed during the interview are each candidate’s position and not those of the League of Women Voters. The League does not endorse or oppose any candidate.

Be informed and vote on April 6th!
