Organizers said it's also an opportunity for candidates to deliver political messages and policy positions, as well as increase their visibility. All candidates on the local ballot have been notified, excluding the presidential race.
Candidates will speak for several minutes and there will be an opportunity for them to answer a couple of questions from the audience. There will be no disrespectful comments, nor badgering the candidates. Questions will be moderated.
