Seven candidates seeking three available 3-year terms on the City Commission agreed to take part in a candidate forum on Oct. 23. It will take place from 3:30 – 5:30 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 and broadcast on TV98 and other public access channels.
The candidates include Jody Bergman, Gary Howe, Patrick McGuire, John Reid, Ross Richardson, Jan Warren and Tim Werner. The Chamber’s Business Leadership Council will meet Friday morning to develop questions and content for the event, which is open to the public. If you have suggestions for business-related topics you want to see addressed at the forum, send them by email to the Chamber’s Bill O’Brien at firstname.lastname@example.org
