Candidates for District 4 will answer questions about their views on the future of the district. The event is free and open to the public and will take place in the Lee classroom on the 1st floor. People are asked to enter the church through the doors on 9th Street.
"The forum for the upcoming election gives the public an opportunity to hear candidates for the contested seat in the Tuscaloosa City Council before the special election on October 8, and for the candidates to participate in a question and answer forum," said Forum Chair Kim Bailey.
Each candidate will be given a one-minute opening statement. Afterward, the LWV moderator will ask each candidate prepared questions, allowing two minutes to respond. Written questions from the audience will be taken if time permits.
The following candidates have been invited to attend: Lee Busby, John Earl, and Frank Fleming.
The League has a strict policy of not allowing political signs, buttons, flyers or other forms of electioneering within the forum venue.
The League of Women Voters, founded in 1920, is a nonpartisan organization committed to the informed and active participation of citizens in government. Open to both men and women, the LWV does not support political parties or candidates. This forum is funded in part by a grant from the League of Women Voters of Alabama Education Fund.
