FutureHeights and League of Women Voters to host candidate forum Oct. 6

FutureHeights and the League of Women Voters Cuyahoga Area will host a forum on Oct. 6, to introduce the candidates for local elections who will be on the Nov. 8 ballot. The forum, which will take place from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Cleveland Heights Community Center, will feature candidates for Cleveland Heights and University Heights City Council, the CH-UH Board of Education and municipal judge.

Deanna Bremer Fisher, executive director of FutureHeights, will moderate the forum. The evening will follow the traditional League of Women Voters procedures for nonpartisan forums. Each candidate will give a brief statement, followed by a question-and-answer session with written questions from the audience. Questions will be screened by a league committee for relevance and to avoid duplication. For more information, visit www.LWVCuyahogaArea.org.

FutureHeights and the League of Women Voters will publish a voters guide in the October print edition of the Heights Observer, which is available at the city halls, schools, libraries, religious institutions and local businesses. An online version will be available at www.heightsobserver.org.

Maps and information about voting locations, wards and precincts are available on the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections website, www.boe.cuyahogacounty.us, or by calling 216-443-3298. Voter registration deadline for the Nov. 8 election is Oct. 11.
