Candidates Forum - Oct. 16

The LWV of Wheaton and five other Leagues will sponsor a Candidate Forum being arranged by LWV of Glen Ellyn. The forum will provide an excellent opportunity for the public to meet candidates and become more informed prior to the November 8 General Election. At the Forum, candidates will each give a two-minute opening statement and will then respond to questions from the audience. The questions will be screened by League representatives and a League trained Moderator to ensure appropriateness and to avoid duplication.
