Central Library to Host Birmingham City Council and School Board Candidate Forums
The NAACP Birmingham-Metro Chapter in collaboration with the League of Women Voters of Greater Birmingham have agreed to head up this massive undertaking, arranging for over 60 candidates to get their message out. Natalie Davis, Birmingham Southern political science professor and political commentator, will moderate the first night; Virginia Randolph, past president of the League of Women Voters of Greater Birmingham, will moderate the following nights.
Each candidate will have the opportunity to state why they are running, why they are the best candidate, and what they hope to accomplish if elected. As time allows, questions will be taken from the audience.
There will be a reception for candidates and constituents each evening at 5:30 p.m. at the library.
