The Friends of the LeClaire Community Library cordially invites members of the press to attend our Candidate Forum for LeClaire City Council and Mayoral on Tuesday, October 29th at 7:00 P.M.  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.

1.      Each candidate will be asked to give an opening statement which should include background, previous office and community involvement experience and why they are running for office. 

2.      A series of five to seven questions (from those submitted by citizens) will be asked to all candidates (mayoral and city council), with two minutes allowed for each candidate to respond. 

3.      One additional question will be given to each mayoral candidate with two minutes to respond.

4.      One minute to each candidate for wrap-up.

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

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.
