LOMBARD, Illinois-- The League of Women Voters and the Association of University Women (AAUW) will sponsor a Candidate's Forum on February 13 at the Lombard Village Hall, located at 255 E. Wilson in Lombard. The Candidate's Forum will begin at 7 p.m. and will be taped and shown on Lombard's Comcast Cable Channel 6 and AT&T U-Verse Channel 99 through Election Day.
Since there are so many candidates running for office, this Candidate's Forum will include those candidates running for the Village Board, the Lombard Park District Board and the Helen Plum Library Board. Any candidate who is running unopposed will be invited to give a brief statement at the Candidate's Forum if he or she chooses to participate.
The Candidate's Forum is outlined as follows:
7 p.m. Village of Lombard Candidates
8 p.m. Lombard Park District Board Candidates
8:30 p.m. Helen Plum Library Board Candidates
The Candidate's Forum will be moderated by Kathy Brenniman, a member of AAUW. A timekeeper will help keep the candidates on task and within the allotted time.
According to Corinne Flemm, a member of the League of Women Voters and organizer of the event, "Putting a face with a name and hearing their statements helps voters become more informed," she said. The public is invited to attend.
