League seeks questions for voter forum

ESCANABA — Delta County League of Women Voters will be hosting a voter forum featuring candidates in the upcoming Delta County Board of Commissioners recall election. Although there will not be a audience at the forum, the League is seeking questions for the candidates from the public.

The Delta County League of Women Voters (DCLWV) is holding the forum in partnership with the American Association of University Women (AAUW) on Tuesday, April 23 at 7 p.m. at Escanaba City Hall.

The three county commissioners under recall will face off against their challengers on May 7.

The public will be able to live-stream the forum on Spectrum channel 191, as well as on the City of Escanaba website https://www.youtube.com/@cityofescanaba2710/streams. In addition, the forum will be recorded and posted to the League’s face book page www.facebook.com/DeltaCountyLeagueofWomenVoters and website www.lwvdeltacounty.org.

The public is encouraged to submit questions by emailing them to: lwv.delta.2024forum@gmail.com prior to the forum on 4/23 or during the forum. The League will be actively watching for questions during the forum. Screeners will be onsite to view the questions and submit them for responses.
