Candidates' Night Forum
The Chillicothe Ross League of Women Voters has hosted Candidates' Forums in the fall for over 75 years. Candidates' Night 2023 will be Tuesday, October 3, at the Ross County Service Center. The doors open to the public at 6:30, and the event starts at 7:00 and is expected to last until 8:30 PM.
Candidates running for Mayor and Council seats in Chillicothe will be able to present themselves to the public and answer questions.
The League is returning to this more structured presentation this year due to twenty-two candidates vying for election. As a nonpartisan voter service organization, we are excited that so many city residents are seeking election for seats on the Council.
The legislative work of the City Council is a fascinating set of processes that can be frustrating to citizens. It involves much research and information gathering, committee meetings, and if needed the writing of proposed legislation. It is imperative that voters know more about their potential office holders and their willingness to spend the time and energy to make the City Council work smoothly. Candidates' Night is an excellent place to start gathering that information.
The event will be livestreamed on FB League of Women Voters: Chillicothe-Ross County. More biographical information about the local candidates and information about state issues 1 and 2 will be available on the voters information website Vote411.org.
