    LWVGTforum

    lwv_logoThe League of Women Voters of Greater Tucson is sponsoring a city council candidate forum for this year’s election. The candidate turnout is looking good with all six candidates attending. Perhaps that’s because the League’s forums have always been the gold standard for live, face-to-face discussion among candidates to offset the canned sound bites that can dominate a political season. This year the League is inviting you to identify the issues you care most about. Send your questions to Shirley, 326-3018 orsmuney2k@yahoo.com, including contact information for follow-up questions. You’ll also have a chance to bring up your afterthoughts from the audience at the forum on October 13th.
