The 17th Mesa Verde Community Inc. Candidate Forum is in the books! Or, as Geoff West said, “in the can!” Over 100 people were in attendance and all 8 candidates running for City Council seats and both Mayor candidates were present, as well. The Forum was recorded by Dane Bora’s team at CMTV and will be available for viewing in a few days; we’re told it’ll likely be Wednesday the 10th.
The candidates were prepared and ready to go! Our goal was to provide an environment where the candidates would be able to respond to all questions, in a timed format. Feedback after the session was that the candidates felt they were treated fairly and allowed to convey their take on the important issues in and around the city. Mesa Verde didn’t have a candidate as we are in District 1, but that seat will be coming open in 2020.
Here are a few pictures from the event!
