Moscow Voter Forum Is 7 PM Wednesday; See 6 Candidates For 3 City Council Seats
Moscow voters will have the opportunity to hear from candidates running for city council Wednesday, Oct. 23. The civic group League of Women Voters is sponsoring a forum for the six candidates running for three city council seats.
The format will include questions asked of candidates by a moderator.
It begins at 7 PM Wednesday at Moscow’s 1912 Center.
The city’s council seats are at-large positions, meaning they aren’t split into city districts or wards. The three candidates receiving the most votes will be elected to four-year terms.
The candidates are:
– Kelsey Berends
– Sandra Kelly
– Maureen Laflin
– Brandon Mitchell
– James Urquidez
– Anne Zabala (incumbent)
