Naperville's Neighbor to Neighbor Network

 

Confederation to Question Candidates

As we have done for many years and across many elections, the Confederation will conduct Candidate Forums during February to better understand the positions and policies of those seeking our votes in the April 2 municipal and local elections, asking the questions homeowners want answered. As the April election helps determine the use of the bulk of our Property Tax dollars, this is a very important election for homeowners concerned about their annual bill.

Our next Forum will be Tuesday evening, February 26, at 7 PM in the City Council Chambers of the Naperville Municipal Center. We have blocked out two hours for the 5 candidates for the Indian Prairie School District 204 Board of Education to tell us about themselves, their platforms, and answer questions both provided by the Confederation and submitted by the audience in Council Chambers.

Our last forum this month,will be February 28 and feature candidates for City Council.

All forums are held at 7 PM in the City Council Chambers of the Naperville Municipal Center and will follow the format we have developed and used throughout the years including televising the events over the City of Naperville public access television channel, Channel 6 WOW, Channel 10 Comcast, and Channel 99 AT&T and the City website
