Rossland voters can meet council candidates Oct. 2

All-candidates debate being held at Miner’s Hall

The City of Rossland All-Candidates Forum is scheduled for Tuesday, October 2, 2018 at 7 p.m., Rossland Miners Hall. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and close at 9:45 p.m.. The event is free and open to the public, but we appreciate any cash donations to the Rossland Food Bank at the door.

The Rossland Rotary Club hosts this event as a not-for-profit community educational event. We do ask that, if possible, each of the candidates attending bring with them a $25 cheque payable to the Rossland Food Bank.

All candidates for city council are invited to participate, and the acclaimed mayor will be given an opportunity to make a statement. The purpose of the all-candidates forum is to give Rossland voters an opportunity to hear candidates discuss the issues of importance to them in this election.

The All Candidates Forum will follow a non-partisan, unbiased and impartial format moderated by Rotary Club members.

Specific rules and the details will be determined in the coming days but we expect the format to be similar to the forum held in 2014.

Your own written questions are encouraged prior to the event as this will help us better organize the topics, issues and questions. Please submit your questions to all or specific candidates to Fred Behrens, fred@rosslandrotary.org.
