Videos of Nomad Story Slam 14 - Election Edition

On Nov 3. 2017, the Newton Nomadic Theater held what we believe to be the first ever political candidate story slam ever.

We invited the 29 candidates that were running in contested elections in Newton to come and tell us a five minute, true personal story - no campaigning, no electioneering, just a story.

We accepted the first 17 who responded (our apologies to those who were too late to be included).  We also invited two outgoing City Councilors to be our co-hosts and tell their own stories.

It was a wonderful night that peeled back the layers of all the campaigning to reveal the people behind the candidates.

Here are their stories:

Ted Hess-Mahan - co-host and outgoing City Councilor
Anping Shen - candidate for School Committee
Deb Crossley - candidate for City Council
Andreae Downs - candidate for City Council
Eileen Sandberg - candidate for School Committee
Janet Sterman - candidate for City Council
Matt Miller - candidate for School Committee
Jake Auchincloss - candidate for City Council
Susan Albright - candidate for City Council
