  • Rules To The Candidate Forums:

    • The order of presentation will be determined by straw selection.
     
    • The candidate drawing the longest straw will be given the option of speaking first or second during either the opening or closing presentations. The other candidate will then have the option of speaking first or second during the time not chosen.
     
    • Each candidate will have three minutes for their opening remarks.
     
    • Questions will be provided by the audience and through the Chamber website prior to the event and will be of a general nature rather than specific to either candidate. Each candidate will have two minutes to answer each question.
     
    • The first candidate to speak will also be the first candidate to answer the first question.
     
    • The second question will be posed to the second speaker first.
     
    • Subsequent questions will follow the order as stipulated above.
     
    • The candidates’ answers will be based on his views, not be about the other candidate’s record or position, and will be directed to the audience.
     
    • No documents about either candidate’s record or position may be used in the forum.
     
    • No disparaging remarks will be made by one candidate about the other candidate.
     
    • At the conclusion of the question-and-answer period, each candidate will be allowed a three-minute closing statement.
