League of Women Voters candidate forum tonight

Plainfield's League of Women Voters chapter will host its candidate forum tonight at Emerson Community School.

The forum will pit four candidates in two races against each other -- Democrat Rebecca Williams and Republican Jim Pivnichny in the Wards 2/3 at-large race, and Democrat incumbent Bill Reid against GOP challenger Sean Alford for the Ward 1 seat.

Celebrating its 90th year -- as well as the 90pth anniversary of women getting the vote -- the League's forum is always the best attended election season event, giving residents an opportunity to see, hear and question candidates for public office.

Owing to time constraints at League's traditional venue, the Plainfield Public Library, the forum has been moved to the new community school, where meetings can run as lated as necessary.

Nonpartisan indeed!
Their agenda as stated on their website seems to fall right in with the Liberal Agenda of the DNC.
I wish people would start being honest for a change.

Blackdog: yes nonpartisan. Rebecca is (or was) an organizer for LWV for a long time. Now she's in one of their debates. Hmmm.

Blackdog, you are funny...its politics, there is no such this as honest.

For Michael: The LWV has been around for 90 years, and membership is open to anyone. The forum (please learn the difference between a forum and a debate, Michael) consists of questions from residents of Plainfield. Your insinuation ("Hmmm.") that there is something underhanded or nefarious about my VOLUNTEER work in helping to organize nonpartisan candidate forums over the years as a member of the LWV is offensive. I am a candidate in this year's municipal election, so of course the LWV would invite me, along with the other candidates, to share my views with the public. EVERY candidate is invited. Why on earth would I not show up? Why don't you join the league and offer up dozens of volunteer hours per year of your time instead of making stupid and baseless accusations?
