The League of Women Voters of Stanislaus County is sponsoring a Candidates’ Night Forum for the Turlock City Council election. The forum will be held Tuesday, September 30th at 7:00 P.M. at the Turlock.City Hall, 156 S. Broadway.
The League of Women Voters neither supports nor opposes candidates for office. A League member will be the Forum moderator; other League members will collect questions and keep track of time. Each candidate will have:
- 2 minutes for an opening statement. This should include qualifications and reasons for seeking office.
- 1 minute to respond to each question presented. These questions will be submitted by the audience and by telephone from television viewers.
- 1 minute for a closing statement. This statement should include what you hope to accomplish if elected.
Please return the enclosed reply form in the self-addressed, stamped envelope by Monday, September 22nd, 2008.
We are exploring the possibility of taping this forum for later broadcast on local access cable.
We look forward to your participation in this important community event. Please feel free to contact either Marsha Waggoner at (209) 526-5104 or the League Office (209) 524-1698.
