SPARC Spring Candidate Forums Set, Questions for Candidates Invited
The Sun Prairie Action Resource Coalition (SPARC) invites local residents to mark their calendars for two upcoming spring candidate forums in advance of the April 7th Spring Election:
School Board Candidate Forum: Thurs. March 5, 6:00pm at the Sun Prairie Public Library
City Council/Mayoral Forum: Sun. March 22, 2:30pm at the Westside Community Building
These forums are free and open to the public, and SPARC welcomes all residents of our community to attend and get to know the candidates who have stepped up to serve Sun Prairie.
As in previous years, SPARC invites members of the Sun Prairie community to send ideas for questions for the candidates to SunPrairieAction@gmail.com.
The SPARC forum committee will meet to look for patterns and common themes in these questions to identify the issues that matter most to local voters, and use these to compile the final list of questions that will be used at the forum. SPARC developed this system to provide an accessible, open, and democratic way to get to know the candidates and where they stand on issues that truly represent the concerns and values of our community.
There will also be time reserved at both forums for general Q&A from the audience.
The events will be filmed to air on KSUN and made available on the SPARC website at SunPrairieAction.org.
Deadline for submitting questions for the March 5 School Board candidate forum is Feb. 22. Deadline for questions for March 22 City Council/Mayoral candidates is March 8. More info here: http://sunprairieaction.org/2015/02/07/sparc-spring-candidate-forums-set-questions-for-candidates-invited/
Spring Elections matter most to local control of local communities. SPARC invites all Sun Prairie residents to get involved, get informed, and vote for the candidates who they feel will best serve our community
