This will be a great opportunity to learn about the candidates’ qualifications, views, and positions as they vie for two seats on the school board. There are five candidates.
The League of Women Voters - Marquette County will be holding a Candidate Forum for the Marquette Area Public School Board candidates. The forum will be held before a general audience. Candidates will be given time for brief opening and closing remarks and will answer written questions submitted by the audience as well as questions submitted in advance. The League encourages MAPS area residents, including staff, teachers, students and parents to attend and submit questions. If preferred or if unable to attend, residents may submit questions in advance to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Forum will be moderated by a League member. The LWV is a nonpartisan organization that seeks to empower voters by providing information about candidates and elections and encourages informed and active participation in government. The League does not support or oppose any candidate or party.
Doors will open at 6:30 for the audience and the event will also be live streamed. Tune in by entering this address into your search engine: https://www.facebook.com/LWVMarquette County. The forum will also be recorded and placed on the LWVMC Web Site (lwvmqt.org) and Facebook page (League of Women Voters of Marquette County). Please note: No other recordings may be made, and no clips of the recording may be used in any political campaign.
