Women’s groups plan to host can­di­date fo­rum

Chattanooga Times Free Press - - OBITUARIES -

The League of Women Vot­ers of Chattanooga will part­ner with the Chattanooga chap­ter of the Na­tional Coali­tion of 100 Black Women to host a can­di­date fo­rum for Hamil­ton County’s Pri­mary Elec­tion in May. All can­di­dates have been in­vited to par­tic­i­pate. It will be mod­er­ated by re­tired ed­u­ca­tor Edna Varner, who cur­rently works for the Pub­lic Ed­u­ca­tion Foun­da­tion and is in­volved in com­mu­nity ser­vice in Chattanooga.

The fo­rum will take place March 26 at Or­chard Knob Mis­sion­ary Bap­tist Church, 1734 E. Third St., from 5-7:30 p.m.

The po­lit­i­cal can­di­date fo­rum will op­er­ate with stand­ing rules for all par­tic­i­pants, which will limit the length of in­tro­duc­tions, open­ing and clos­ing state­ments, and re­sponses to ques­tions so that ev­ery­one may have time to speak. The au­di­ence will be able to sub­mit ques­tions.

The fo­rum will be non­par­ti­san.
