Every candidate in each of the four races has been invited to participate.
At each candidate forum, candidates will respond to questions posed by members of the audience and by the LWVA. At the October 11 forum, League members who are informed on the state and local ballot measures will present impartial balanced, and nonpartisan “Pros and Cons” on each measure and answer audience questions.
The LWVA intends to videotape all four forums and make the videos available for later viewing on the League’s web site.
