City Council Candidate Forum Sponsored by League of Women Voters

Friday, October 27, 2017, 2:00 AM - 4:00 AM

13 candidates are running for 3 open seats on the Boise City Council. Current council members Mary Ann Jordan and Ben Quintana have chosen not to run for reelection, while council member T.J. Thomson is running for a third term. Candidates run for numbered seats which do not have geographic boundaries, except that all are within the Boise City limits. We have invited all candidates to participate in this forum.  

We are soliciting questions from voters and each candidate will have opportunity to speak to your questions. Dr. Jim Weatherby, BSU professor emeritus, will moderate this forum as candidates respond to the questions from the audience. Please submit questions in advance to LWVGreaterBoiseArea@gmail.com or tweet them to us @LWVGreaterBoise. There will also be an opportunity to submit questions at the forum.

Parking for this event is limited and carpooling is strongly encouraged. For this event only, the public will be allowed to park in the library employees’ parking lot across 8th Street from the Auditorium after 6 p.m. 
The League of Women Voters Greater Boise Area is a non-partisan organization that seeks to educate voters. We do not endorse any candidate; we endorse active participation in democracy.
