The forum panel will feature Naperville City Councilmen Kevin Coyne and Naperville Township Supervisor Rachel Ossyra together with Lisle Township Supervisor Richard Tarulis and Gregory Higgins, an accountant active in supporting the Naperville Township Road District. Forum Moderator Bob Fischer will outline the ballot questions and lead the panel through a discussion, both pro and con, on what these proposals might mean to Naperville neighborhoods and taxpayers. Audience members at the Forum will be invited to submit their questions to the NAHC for panel consideration as well.

In addition to being available to a live audience in the Council Chambers, the forum will be broadcast live on the City of Naperville government access channel, WCNC (Channel 6 WOW, Channel 10 COMCAST, and Channel 99 AT&T).
