This is your chance to meet the candidates who are running for the Parchment City Commission!  Six candidates are on the ballot for four positions.  The election will be held on November 2nd.

The candidates will make prepared statements to answer each of the following questions (with a time limit of 2 minutes):

- Please introduce yourself with a brief biography and tell us the primary reason you are running for office.  How long have you lived here, and what specific skills / strengths will you bring to the role of commissioner?  If you are elected, what do you want to achieve during your tenure? 

- What is the most critical issue facing Parchment, and what should be done to address it?  

Each member of the audience may write one question for the candidates on an index card. Each candidate’s response will be limited to 1 minute.


Each candidate will have 1 minute at the end for a closing statement.

​Candidates and audience members will have the chance to chat informally after the forum.
