Each forum is free and open to the public. They all start at 7PM with a casual meet and greet with the candidates. The moderated forum will run from approximately 7:15 PM to 8:45 PM. Each forum will be in a moderated question and answer format followed by a closing statement.
The SnooValley Chamber says these forums provide great opportunities for the candidates to respond to issues-based questions and for the public to compare and contrast candidates. The moderator will utilize questions developed by reviewing the candidates’ websites, newspaper and blog articles on the issues, voters’ guide statements, public meetings, and questions submitted by the public.
If you would like to submit issues-based questions to be considered for the forums, please send an email to Chamber Executive Director Kelly Coughlin, at email@example.com no later than 9/27/19. Given time constraints, questions will be grouped by like topic. The Chamber said it makes no promises that all questions submitted by the public will end up in the moderator script.
