Election Forums 2013

Related Links:
Red Deer Public Library Online Forum 
A forum is the opportunity for the public to hear from individuals running for office.  A Forum may involve candidates being asked to present their platforms or may be conducted in a question/answer format whereby members of the public can ask questions to which the candidates respond.  Forums are hosted by business/special interest groups and are not a part of the legislated election process.  The City is not involved in coordinating these events.
