The League of Women Voters of Grand Traverse Area is hosting a Mayor and City Commission Candidate Forum on Thurs., Oct. 17, 7-8:30 p.m., at the Traverse Area District Library. All seven candidates for the commission and two candidates for mayor are participating in the League-moderated forum. Voters will have an opportunity to hear the background and qualifications of each candidate, what each sees as the major challenge of the office they seek and how they plan to address that challenge. Each candidate will also answer a different question dealing with a city government issue. An informal meet & greet will follow the forum.
