Something different is coming to Ivanhoe. Similar to the Presidential debates, the Friends of Ivanhoe, is hosting a Meet the Mayoral Candidates Forum on October 18 at 7:00 PM at the Buck Priest Community Center.
Lea Craven and Glinda Goodman, co-chairs of the group stated, "We feel that it is important that everyone have an opportunity to hear both candidates speak more in detail about where they stand on the issues Ivanhoe is currently facing and their ideas for our future. In the past we have held forums which included the City Council candidates along with those running for Mayor but it is not possible for anyone to really address the issues in just the few minutes that this type of forum allows.
On the national level we as citizens have an opportunity to hear our presidential candidates in a similar interchange and realize how important it is to hear our leaders express their views. We are hoping that this will give the citizens of Ivanhoe a chance to be more informed."
