Chamber of Commerce Civic Election Forum Draws Another Large Crowd

 
 

LETHBRIDGE:  About 400 people took in the Chamber of Commerce all candidates forum at the Yates Centre Wednesday night.

 

Topics ranged from the arts, to attracting business, recycling, and the token flouride questions coming from those in attendance as well as a media panel.

 

Attendees that Country 95 News spoke with after the Councillor candidates portion at the forum appeared to be looking at a wide range of issues during this campaign. But there was a common thread among many of the responses - transparency and fiscal responsibility.

 

One lady named Jane responded, "I think honesty and integrity and the ability to be respectful to citizens". 

 

In spite of a steady round of all-candidate forums, public interest in getting to know the candidates remains very high and many of those in attendance agreed the forums are the best way to learn first-hand about those seeking a position on Council.

 

During one interview, a man named John stated, "The thing I am looking for is fiscal responsibility and for Council to take back control of our city from the Administration". He went on to say, "It's easy for people to simply publish stuff on a web site but here they get questions and they have to answer off-the-cuff and I think you really get down to the core of what they're thinking".

 

Another man attending the forum said he didn't know any of the candidates and was able to get a better understanding of who they are. Another lady left the forum saying it had helped her choose her, "five, six, seven and eight picks" for who she would cast a ballot for.

 

If you've already made up your mind who you will vote for, there are still several Advance Pools to take advantage of:

 

Thursday, October 17th -- City Hall (10:00-am to 8:00-pm)

 

On Friday, October 18th, there are three voting locations all from from 10:00-am to 8:00-pm as well:

Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints -- 2410 - 28th Street South;

University Alliance Church -- 55 Columbia Boulevard West.
