League of Women Voters sets forum for Oct. 6

The League of Women Voters will host a candidate and issues forum on Thursday, Oct. 6, at 6 p.m. at the Extension Building.

Candidates running for the three positions on the school board (Districts 2, 3 and 4) are invited and speakers, both pro and con, will address the bond issues.

The school bond issue would fund a consolidated campus, providing a single location for all the district’s schools. The county bond issue asks for a road-specific mill levy increase of 7 mills for a duration of four years with the associated de-Brucing figure to allow the county to collect the revenue that exceeds TABOR limits.

The League of Women Voters Forum will begin with introductions. Questions addressed to candidates and issues will come from the moderator and the audience.

The League of Women Voters was founded in 1920 to promote political responsibility through informed and active citizen participation in government. There are approximately 80,000 members of the League of Women Voters within all 50 states and the Virgin Islands. In Colorado, alone, there are 1,500 members. The League is a nonpartisan organization that neither supports nor opposes any candidate or party. The League does take positions on issues based on in-depth study and provides voters with that analysis. As such, the League enjoys a reputation in the community for providing voters with reliable, balanced information.

Local League membership is $15 and all citizens are encouraged to join and get involved. For more information on the LWV, visit the website at http://lwvac.org/league.html.
