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)
