Norfolk County Commissioner Candidate Forum

League of Women Voters Norfolk County Commissioner Candidate Forum

Meet the candidates running in the Norfolk County Commissioner in the November 8, 2022 Election. Incumbent Democrat Peter Collins and challenger, Independent Matt Sheehan, have accepted our invitation to participate on October 19, 2022 at 4 pm. The forum is co-hosted by the following Norfolk County Leagues of Women Voters: Brookline, Needham, Norwood, Sharon-Stoughton, Wellesley, and Westwood-Walpole-Dedham, and Cohasset (part of the Hingham League).

The forum has two goals: 1) to describe the office of County Commissioner and its functions, and 2) to give the candidates an opportunity to present themselves to the voters and answer questions from LWV and the voters.

Questions for the candidates may be emailed in advance to Questions should be relevant to both candidates for the office and current issues must be received by October 19 at 12 noon.

The forum will be conducted on Zoom and can be viewed live on The Needham Channel website at

The recorded forum will be available at the Needham Channel and LWV websites.
