Review to host two candidate forums
The Review will host two candidate forums this fall in advance of the November general election. We feel that its our responsibility as the primary source of news and information about Lake Oswego to play a key role in helping voters make informed decisions about the future of this city we all love.
So save these dates:
MONDAY, SEPT. 26: A forum for candidates running for Mayor;
MONDAY, OCT. 3: A forum for candidates running for City Council.
Both forums will take place in the Community Meeting Room at the Lakewood Center for the Arts, 368 S State St. Both are scheduled from 6-7:30 p.m.
The format will allow for opening statements from each candidate, a series of questions from the moderator (Review Editor Gary M. Stein) and time for questions from the audience. Its your chance to talk directly with the candidates about the issues that are important to you.
