The spring election season is here with contested races for Forest Park mayor and commissioner. Election Day is April 4 and early voting starts in just three weeks.
The Review, in partnership with the Forest Park Chamber of Commerce, will sponsor a shared forum with candidates for Forest Park mayor and for commissioner on Tuesday, Feb. 28 at 6:30. The event will be hosted by District 91 at Grant-White School, 147 Circle Ave.
There will be back-to-back forums for the two candidates for mayor and for the six candidates for four seats on the village council.
Dan Haley, publisher of the Review, will moderate. Audience members will be asked to submit written questions.
The Forest Park Review is gearing up for the election with candidate profiles underway, a digital candidate guide being planned, questionnaires out to all the candidates, an extensive Voter Guide being prepped for print on March 15 and, we’re glad to say, the return of in-person candidate forums as COVID eases.
