Seven candidates seeking three available 3-year terms on the City Commission will take part in today’s candidate forum from 3:30 – 5 p.m. at the Traverse City Central High School Auditorium. Staff and students from Traverse City Area Public Schools will assist with production so the event can be streamed online on the TCAPS website and broadcast on TV98 and other public access channels.
The Chamber’s Business Leadership Council and the Northwest Michigan Builders Exchange helped develop a series of business-related questions that will be asked of the candidates. The Chamber encourages members of the business community to attend the forum, so our city officials understand and appreciate the critical role that our business sector plays in the success of the city.
The candidates include Jody Bergman, Gary Howe, Patrick McGuire, John Reid, Ross Richardson, Jan Warren and Tim Werner. The election is Nov. 5, so be an informed voter.
