  1. Will this be a fair forum?
    Since we do not know how the questions will be selected there is much speculation that questions which do not favor the candidate choices of the League’s organizers will not be selected. I hope the press will be there for any comments after the forum. Otherwise, I urge all residents whose questions are ignored to post their comments on this blog. Questions may be collected before the forum begins so make sure you arrive early if you want to put questions in the boxes for candidates.
