Candidate Forum tonight in Euclid
Tonight I will be moderating a forum for candidates for public office in Euclid, Ohio. The program begins at 7PM at Euclid Central Middle School, 20701 Euclid Avenue.
All four mayoral candidates have confirmed their attendance, along with both judicial candidates, and three of the four candidates for Euclid School Board.
The program was organized by Ward 1 Councilman David Gilliham, who told The Real Deal that he was sponsoring the forum as a way to give the residents of his ward the chance to meet the candidates and to ask them questions.
While the forum was designed to meet the needs of Ward 1 residents, Gilliham said that residents of any ward are welcome to attend.
Euclid is a working class city with a recent history of social unrest that figures to be reflected in the outcome of the mayoral contest.
We will be wearing our referee’s hat tonight. Next week, we will put on our analyst’s visor to take a look at some of the races in Euclid and elsewhere.
