League of Women Voters to host Westlake, Bay candidates forums

The Westlake and Bay chapters of the League of Women Voters - Cuyahoga Area will present candidates' nights in advance of the Nov. 5 General Election. A classic LWV format will be used, with each candidate in a contested race giving short opening and closing remarks and an LWV moderator posing audience questions that have been screened for duplication, clarity, relevance and appropriateness.

The Westlake forum will be held Tuesday, Oct. 1, at 6:45 p.m. at Westlake Porter Public Library, 27333 Center Ridge Road. The candidates for Board of Education will appear first, followed at 7:30 p.m. by the contested candidates for Wards 1, 2 and 6.

The Bay forum, to be held on Wednesday, Oct. 2, at 7 p.m. in the Bay High School auditorium at 29230 Wolf Road, will begin with the two Primary Election-winning candidates for mayor. The three uncontested City Council candidates will speak for three minutes each to introduce themselves and their views. Finally, the six candidates in the contested elections for City Council Wards 2, 3 and 4 will discuss their visions and plans for Bay Village.

The LWV General Election Voters' Guides for Westlake and Bay Village will be published in the Oct. 1 issue of the Westlake | Bay Village Observer and will be available online at wbvobserver.com through Election Day.
