The League of Women Voters of Collin County invites the public to a free forum to meet candidates for Collin County offices and legislative districts in the coming November 8 General Election.
The forum on Saturday, October 8, at the Christopher A. Parr Library, 6200 Windhaven Parkway, Plano, will have four sessions to present candidates in the following contested races:
· Session 1, 10:30 – 11:30: 416th District Judge, Collin County Justice of the Peace Precinct 3 Place 1
· Session 2, 11:45 – 12:45 : U.S. Representative District 3
· Session 3, 1:00 – 2:00 : Texas Representative Districts 66, 67 and 70
· Session 4, 2:15 – 3:15 : Texas Representative Districts 33 and 89
Candidates for Collin County Sheriff, Constable Precinct 1, and U.S. Representative District 4 were also invited but are unable to attend. A complete list of candidates invited and those attending is available at www.LWVCollin.org/forums.html.
Persons in the audience will have the opportunity to submit written questions to be asked of the candidates during each session. An informal meet-and-greet will be held between sessions. Although this event is held at a Plano public library, it is not sponsored by the Plano Public Library System or the city of Plano.
