29th Ward and 36th Ward Alderman Forums
We apologize for not giving a heads-up here about the 29th Ward Aldermanic Candidate Forum organized by the Westside Branch NAACP last week (Luckily, there’s complete CanTV footage available!).
There’s another chance to meet all the candidates on Thursday, Feb. 5th at the ANDE‘s Forum on Impactful Leadership at Galewood Community Church, 1776 N Narragansett, from 7-9pm. As of Tuesday, all candidates aside from incumbent Deborah Graham had confirmed they’ll attend.
If you’re undecided heading into election day, these events are a fantastic chance to hear the candidates speak and interact with each other. Generally the candidates take questions from the public, and sometimes it’s possible speak to the candidates in person afterwards.
Don’t forget that in both the Mayoral and Aldermanic elections, more than 50% of the vote is required to win, so even with well-funded frontrunners in most campaigns, it’s easy to force a runoff, so a vote for a lesser-known candidate is never a wasted vote!
