Friends of Downtown Candidates Forum

"Starting promptly at 10:00 a.m., we will begin with the challengers (Jessica Anderson, Pam Hemminger, Adam Jones, Gary Kahn, Paul Neebe, Nancy Oates, Michael Parker and David Schwartz), followed by the incumbents (Donna Bell, Lee Storrow and Jim Ward), and then Mayor Mark Kleinschmidt. Before answering their first question, each candidate will have two minutes to introduce themselves. After each question, someone from the audience (chosen at the discretion of the Moderator) will ask one follow-up question on the topic. 

If time permits, we will ask a second question of each candidate, in the same order, with an audience follow-up question.

Gatherings of the Friends of the Downtown are free and open to the public, with parking in the hotel gated lots as available. Parking is also available in the Town lots behind Chipotle, next to 411 West, the 140 West Parking Garage and elsewhere downtown. 

We look forward to seeing you on September 24th and to an exciting election season.
