The national conventions are finally behind us which serves as a reminder that November 4th is only eight weeks away. We’ll be bombarded by news of the national candidates and their political ads even though most of us have probably made up our minds who to vote for already. But what about the local candidates? Our local leaders make important decisions that have immediate impact on our daily lives. They make major and minor decisions that affect all of us and ultimately shape the communities in which we live. It’s time to do your homework and learn about our local candidates’ positions so you can be an informed voter on both the national and local levels.
Your neighborhood associations have gotten together to arrange for you to meet the candidates and ask questions so that you can become an informed voter. Please reserve Tuesday evening, September 16th for this important event. You’ll have the chance to meet and question eight candidates for City Council and Mayoral races. Please plan to arrive at 6:30 to allow time to submit your questions to the candidates. Refreshments will be available. The 2008 Candidates’ Forum will begin at 7:00PM.
