Learn about candidates at forum tonight

Tonight the public has an opportunity to ask questions of candidates for local government and learn more about them.Candidates for Glenwood Springs City Council and the Roaring Fork School District Re-1 School Board are expected to attend tonight’s Issues and Answers forum hosted by the Glenwood Springs Chamber Resort Association at City Hall. It’s a chance to figure out where candidates stand and what they hope to accomplish.

Questions will be taken from the audience, and a panel of three or four media representatives will also ask candidates about where they stand on relevant issues. A moderator will conduct the forum. The League of Women Voters format commonly seen in televised debates will be used, and candidates are expected to have a three-minute opening statement prepared. Responses to questions are limited to two minutes, with one minute allowed for an opponent’s rebuttal.The event will be broadcast live on Cable Channel 12. It’s also covered by KMTS and KUUR radio stations, TV Aspen Glenwood and KREG TV. The event will be rebroadcast several times on Channel 12. The Post Independent, Valley Community Television, KMTS and KGLN radio stations and State Farm Insurance are co-sponsoring the event. Call 945-6589 for more information.
