Cranbrook residents will be able to ask questions to local candidates running in the 2022 general municipal election.
JCI Kootenay will be hosting an all-candidates forum at the Key City Theatre on Thursday, Oct. 6.
According to JCI officials, the forum will give the public a chance to discuss political issues concerning the community.
Candidates will be asked a series of questions submitted anonymously by the audience before the event.
Residents will also have an opportunity to meet the candidates face-to-face prior to the forum.
If you can’t attend the event, you can still ask a question by submitting it to [email protected] or the JCI Kootenay Facebook page by 11:59 a.m. on Oct. 6th.
