The Rotary Club of Naperville Is Sponsoring Public Forums for Mayor and City Council - Join us as we learn about our candidates.
The Rotary Club of Naperville, working from the theme of Leadership through community service, will be sponsoring the Mayoral Forum on Feb 26th during our regular noon Rotary Club meeting at Meson Sabika. The public is invited - lunch is $20, and we ask that everyone register so we will know how many are attending. There will also be a live stream for the program.
"We believe there is a need for the electorate to learn more about the 19 candidates running for City Council and the four for Mayor. As things stand now, there will be very few opportunities for the candidates to present their case to the public through a highly publicized candidate forum that will be open to the public. We would like to fill that void as the campaign begins.”Said John Gallagher, Rotary president. “We feel this is a way to demonstrate Rotary Club’s leadership that gives back to the community. We will not be endorsing anyone. Rather we are contributing a public service to the Naperville Community.”
We are offering our forum at the beginning of the campaign season, as early voting begins so that the community will have time to learn about the candidates and their positions. To attend or help promote these events - click below to go to Facebook and let us know you will be joining us
