The Fredericksburg Chamber of Commerce will host a Candidates Forum for the four candidates running for Fredericksburg’s City Council. The Forum will be held on Monday, April 22 from 6-7:30 p.m. at Hill Country University Center in the H-E-B Community Room. The event is open to the public.
“Our goal is to provide a neutral, non-partisan platform for voters to meet the candidates, ask questions of them and hear their opinions on the issues facing our community,” said Chamber President/CEO Penny C. Reeh. “It is the mission of the Chamber to create a positive and growing business community and we believe citizen involvement in the elective process is a valuable component of fulfilling that mission.”
Attendees will be able to submit questions in writing, which will be posed to the candidates by a moderator. Each candidate will have three minutes to answer the question. Follow-up questions or rebuttals from other candidates will not be allowed. The order in which candidates are allowed to answer will be decided by a drawing prior to the Forum and will then alternate with each question posed.
Elections for two City Council seats will be held on Saturday, May 11.
