CANDIDATE DEBATES

How much do we really know about the people we elect to office? How do we get the information needed to make a deliberate and informed decision on which candidate to vote for? Door hangers? Yard signs? The truth is that our candidates are, for the most part, not well vetted. That's why candidate debates are vital! Don't miss your opportunity to ask key questions of the people who make local laws and decide how our resources are used.

The League of Women Voters has scheduled the following debates:
