Second Live Citywide Forum to be Televised

Citywide candidates showcased as the League, Bayside and Munjoy Hill will host District 1 and At-Large Races.

Portland residents will be able to see all the local political candidates in a forum broadcast live on Channel 2 on September 19th at Portland's Community Television Network.

Channel 2, at 516 Congress Street, the League of Young Voters, Bayside Neighborhood Association and Munjoy Hill Neighborhood Organization will host the live, televised forum.

City Council, School Committee, and Water District candidates for Districts 1 and At-Large races will participate. The forum will begin at 6:30 pm and will run until 9 pm. The forum is non-partisan, educational and free for all who attend. There will be refreshments and light snacks provided by the sponsoring groups.

The forum is the second one being televised live this campaign season. The District 2 and At-Large City Council candidates and School Committee candidates participated in the first forum on September 12th. That forum will be re-broadcast at a yet-to-be-determined time. It will also be covered in the next issue of the West End NEWS.
