City Council, School Board Candidates To Address Voters In Monday ForumApril 13, 2011
Local elections to fill spots on the Waco City Council and School Board will take place May 14. The League of Women Voters is bringing together 5 candidates for those two contests this Monday evening at 6 at the Greater Waco Chamber of Commerce Building, in an event co-sponsored by KWBU, the Chamber, and Parents For Public Schools. Karla Leeper of the League is moderating the forum, and says it meets a goal of helping voters make more informed decisions about local elections that don't always receive prominent media coverage, but affect residents' daily lives.
Karla Leeper will be moderating the event, with city council candidates speaking Monday evening between 6 and 6:30, followed by the school board from 6:40 to 7:15. The forum takes place at the Greater Waco chamber of Commerce Building. For KWBU News, I'm Derek Smith.
