Candidate forums begin next week

Edmonton, September 13, 2007 – Edmontonians can find out more about the candidates in this year’s Municipal Election at a series of forums sponsored by the City of Edmonton and the Edmonton Public and Edmonton Catholic School Districts.

On October 15, voters will elect a Mayor, City Councillors and the Trustees of the Edmonton Public and Edmonton Catholic School Boards. Three forums are scheduled for mayoralty candidates, two are scheduled for each of the City Council wards and one is scheduled for each School Board ward. The first is set for next Wednesday, September 19, and they run until October 11.

All candidates are invited to the forums. Each will be given an opportunity to briefly outline their platforms, and voters will then be invited to ask questions.

Volunteers from Edmonton Toastmasters will moderate the City and Edmonton Catholic forums to ensure fair, impartial proceedings. Edmonton Public Schools forums will be moderated by District students.

Edmontonians can confirm which ward they live in by logging on to www.edmonton.ca/election and clicking on Where to Vote. They can also call 496-
8008.

The website also offers links from candidates who have provided their campaign website information.
