Chamber-sponsored candidate forum Thursday

April 17, 2013

Made up your mind over who to vote for in the May 11 city council and school board elections?

If not, plan on attending Thursday's Meet the Candidates Forum, scheduled for a 6 p.m. start in the Hall Center for the Arts.

The format will be simple.

“Each candiate will be allowed to speak for five minutes,” said Debbye ValVerde, Chamber executive director. “This will not be a question and answer forum.”

However, she added that voters will be able to meet one-on-one with candidates after the forum and ask questions at that time.
