Meet the Candidates Oct. 8
The Boone Area Chamber of Commerce will host a Meet the
Candidates forum Tuesday, Oct. 8, in the Boone Town Council Chambers on Blowing Rock Road, beginning
at 5:30 p.m.
All the candidates for Boone mayor and town council have been invited to participate.
Questions will be asked of all the candidates in a round robin format, with each having an opportunity to answer first, but all answering the same question. The audience will be allowed to submit written questions during the forum. All questions will be asked by the moderator. Each response will have a one-minute time limit, and each candidate will have a two-minute closing statement.
According to the chamber, the forum is not intended to be a debate between candidates or between the audience and the candidates, but rather an opportunity for the citizenry to hear each candidate’s position on topics important to all. In order to maintain decorum, political literature and signage will not be allowed in the room.
To submit questions, call (828) 264-2225 or email (firstname.lastname@example.org)
