Tribune to host City Council forums

SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. – To connect the public with this year’s City Council candidates, the Tahoe Daily Tribune and the Lake Tahoe South Shore Chamber of Commerce will host three forums leading up to the Nov. 2 election.

Some of the time and location information for these forums is still being decided. However, the dates listed below are certain. Events will most likely be held in the evening.

The first forum will be held on Oct. 6 and will feature a meet and greet format where candidates and voters can candidly interact. At the beginning of the meeting candidates will be given some time to talk about their top issues. This forum will be hosted in conjunction with a chamber Business After Hours Mixer from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Tahoe Daily Tribune’s offices at 3079 Harrison Ave.

A community organization panel will ask the questions at the second panel to be held Oct. 13. Members of the community panel will represent various interests including tourism, real estate, recreation, health care, the environment, small businesses and the Latino community. Each panel member will be able to ask the candidates one question that addresses the biggest issue their interest is facing. Each candidate will receive equal time to respond to the question. Candidates will also be allowed to make an opening and closing statement. The time and location of this forum is still being decided.

The public will ask the questions at the final forum on Oct. 20. Anyone will be able to submit a question that will be asked of all the candidates and each candidate will have an equal time to respond. Questions will be reviewed before they are asked for appropriateness and to eliminate repetition. Candidates will also be allowed to make an opening and closing statement. The time and location of this forum is still being decided.

In addition to co-hosting the forums, the Tribune will also begin publishing a series of election articles in September about the candidates’ view points on specific issues.
