Ucluelet’s Chamber of Commerce will host two forums for residents to hear from their municipal council candidates next week.
The chamber has traditionally hosted one all-candidates forum prior to an election, but with eleven candidates for four council seats and four candidates for mayor, decided to split the candidates up this year. A forum for council candidates will be held on Oct. 2 from 7-9 p.m. at the USS band room and one for mayoral candidates on Oct. 3 from 7-9 p.m. in the band room.
“We’re very excited to host the all-candidates forum and we’re excited that there’s so many people running for council and mayor,” chamber president Dian McCreary told the Westerly News. “We’ll be very happy to hear what our candidates have to say moving forward.”
She said each candidate is expected to be asked two to three questions and questions from the audience will only be permitted if time allows.
