Each candidate will have a 2-minute opening statement; after that, a moderator will begin asking questions of various candidates, and their responses will be timed to a 2-minute maximum.
Questions will come from both those submitted beforehand from residents to the Sierra Sun, as well as others crafted from Sierra Sun staff.
Index cards will also be made available for attendants to write their own questions, and when the list of reader and Sierra Sun questions expires, should there be enough time, non-repetitive questions submitted by the audience will be asked.
None of these questions will be made available to the candidates before the forum. After questions, each candidate will have 2 minutes for a closing statement.
People interested in submitting questions should e-mail them to Sun Managing Editor Kevin MacMillan at email@example.com. Questions via e-mail should have and#8220;candidate forum questionand#8221; in the subject line. The deadline for questions is Monday, Oct. 11.
