Comox mayoral and council hopefuls invited to forum Nov. 3

Comox voters are invited to meet and question their municipal and school board election candidates at an all-candidates' forum.

Comox voters are invited to meet and question their municipal and school board election candidates during an all-candidates’ forum sponsored by the Comox Town Residents’ Association.

The moderated and timed event will be held at the Comox Recreation Centre on Noel Avenue in the multi-purpose hall 1 on Nov. 3.

The doors will open at 7:15 p.m. for a meet and greet and the forum will begin at 7:30 p.m. sharp and run to enable a reasonable number of questions before summations by the candidates.

The forum will be divided into three main sections: timed speeches from candidates, an audience question period, and a short summation statement by the candidates.

Those wishing to ask a question of the candidates will be asked to write their name on a card. These cards will be placed in a draw box and names will be randomly chosen from this box during question period.

Only one question is permitted per person. Questions  must be directed to all candidates but both questions and answers will be timed to ensure that as many people as possible can participate. Debates will not be permitted.

The municipal election will take place Nov. 19, electing a Comox mayor and six councillors to three-year terms.
