THIS WILL NOT BE A FORUM AS SCHEDULED, ONLY A “MEET THE CANDIDATES” EVENT.
Save the Date! This particular Candidate Forum is set for Sunday, October 7 at 1:00 P.M. As more information is released on which offices/candidates will be at the debate, I will release those details.
The League of Women Voters of Lake County will hold a public Candidate Forum. The Forum is co-sponsored by the Round Lake Area Public Library and will be held at the Round Lake Beach Cultural & Civic Center in Round Lake Beach.
Here’s the official news release:
