Voter Education Coalition to sponsor Candidate Fair

February 27, 2013


Local voters will have an opportunity to meet and talk with candidates for the Lawrence City Commission and Lawrence school board during a Candidate Fair scheduled from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday at the Carnegie Building, 200 W. Ninth St.

Information about the $92.5 million school bond question also will be available at the event, which is sponsored by the local Voter Education Coalition.

Each candidate will have a table on which to display campaign materials. No formal presentations are planned at the event, but voters will have a chance to talk with candidates informally about issues of concern to them.

The public also is invited to attend a candidate forum that will include both city and school board candidates on March 6 in the City Commission chamber in Lawrence City Hall. The school board forum will begin at 6:30 p.m., followed by the City Commission forum at 7:30 p.m. The forums will be televised live on the city’s Channel 25 on the Knology Broadband system.

VEC is a cooperative effort of about 15 community groups that are seeking to promote civic dialogue and broad participation of voters and candidates through community forums.
