All City Council and Mayoral candidates for election in the November 2013 municipal elections for the City of LeClaire are invited to participate in a public forum hosted by the Friends of the LeClaire Community Library on Tuesday, October 29th beginning at 7:00 P.M. sharp. Due to space constraints, the forum will be at the LeClaire Fire Station located at 201 N. 15th Street (corner of Jones and 15th).

This is an educational service to which the public and press are invited.

As in past years, questions may be submitted by any resident of the city of LeClaire (including candidates) by placing the written questions in a secured box at circulation desk of the LeClaire Community Library.  There is no limit on the number of questions an individual may submit and questions may be submitted anonymously.

One week prior to the Forum, all questions submitted will be delivered to the moderators, who will group duplicates and select the questions to be asked during the forum.  Questions will be asked of candidates in rotating order, with response times for each question determined by the moderators.

This year’s moderators are Ann Hutchinson, former mayor of Bettendorf, and Linda Miller, Iowa House of Representatives, also of Bettendorf.

Candidates who have not already done so are asked to respond indicating whether they will participate to Jillian Flahaven, Interim Director of the LeClaire Community Library, by October 27, 2013 by calling 563-289-4242 x 4 or via email at: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Attendees are encouraged to arrive at the fire station by 6:45 as the program will begin promptly at 7:00.  Refreshments, courtesy of the Friends of the LeClaire Community Library, will be served.
