Meet the Candidates Forum is an opportunity for voters and candidates to meet one another in a more personal event format compared to a debate. Candidates are provided one table for their campaign staff and handouts. Sponsors are provided one table for their business staff, marketing collateral and any prizes they offer. The voters are provided seating facing the front of the meeting space. The event begins with thanking our attendees, campaigns and sponsors for their support. We will begin introducing candidates to the audience in the order they appear on the ballot. Each candidate will have 5 to 10 minutes of uninterrupted speaking time to discuss their campaign goals, positions on topics and other related topics. After all the candidates have spoken, we will call up any of our sponsors who are running raffles or other give-away contests. When the raffle segment is complete, we thank everyone for their attendance, invite them to visit the candidates at their respective tables, and request attendees complete an event survey to help us improve future events.
A portion of this event will be streamed live on our YouTube channel. We’ll provide more details as we come closer to the 17th.
