Local Democracy In Action
To The Editor:
All of the candidates for city council and mayor have been invited to an open community forum at the VFW on Thursday, October 15. The public is also invited to the forum which should be a fun and educational evening. The evening will begin at 5:30 p.m. with a social hour, including free appetizers with a cash bar. Any one attending the forum may write a question for the candidates and the questions will be handled by a moderator. The question and answer session will begin around 6:30 p.m. Each candidate will be allowed one minuted for an opening and closing statement and one minute to answer the questions.
The forum is designed to allow the candidates to speak directly to the voters. Because we live in a small town an event such as the candidate forum should provide information as well as enjoyment for everyone participating.
CRG is sponsoring this event and welcomes all of the people living in Emmetsburg to attend the forum. Save the date, Thursday, October 15, at 5:30 p.m. in the VFW Hall.
