Please do join us and submit your written questions for the candidates. Though some offices are uncontested, there are serious matters which this council will face and this provides an opportunity to hear their responses to your concerns and their views and positions on a range of issues.
The Candidates Forum Event Flyer is here. Feel free to download and resend it to anyone you feel would like to attend the event.
The Town of Silver City has provided a Notice of Candidates which also includes polling places, precinct board members and other information regarding this election.
Please Note – Early voting continues at City Hall through Friday 2 March 2012.
Though all candidates were invited to this forum, Cody Petty and Tom Joines have apparently chosen not to participate. Some controversy has been raised as a result which has been posted on GilaCommunity.Net (http://gilacommunity NULL.net/viewtopic NULL.php?t=9114&sid=aa23bc2a109740c885b76bc3450c52d8).
