League Of Women Voters Candidates Night Scheduled For October 16
Democracy is only as effective as the people who participate in it. And the Number One way to participate is to vote. It’s not always an easy thing to do.
Voters are challenged to learn as much as possible about candidates and issues in a 24/7 news cycle where information, which is often not true or partially true, makes it difficult to make informed decisions.
The Lakewood Chapter of the League of Women Voters Cuyahoga Area will host a Candidates Forum, Tuesday, October 16 at 7 p.m. in the auditorium at the Women’s Pavilion in Lakewood Park. Dale Miller and Anna Melendez, candidates for Cuyahoga Council District 2 and Nickie Antonio and John Zappala candidates for Ohio House District 13 will present their positions on the issues and answer questions from the audience. This forum is an opportunity for citizens to become familiarized with the candidates and educated about the way they would address the challenges in our community.
Forums such as this one give the electorate a unique opportunity to ask their questions and evaluate candidates directly based on their responses.
The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan political membership organization that encourages informed and active participation in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues and influences public policy through education and advocacy.
