Note from an organizer of Monday's candidate forum...

This is the form we will be asking neighbors at the meeting to use to write their questions on. This is printed on the back of an 5x8" lined index card. Worth repeating that addresses are required only to determine if the question comes from someone in the Neighborhood Associations sponsoring the event and that Names will not be  disclosed when the questions are asked. Questions from Eden Place, Parrot Cove and College Park neighbors get first priority and questions from outside the three associations will only be asked as time allows.
Having the questions all come in at once, on the night of the event, from neighbors in attendance is part of how we try to make this relevant and fair. Questions are not formulated by the Neighborhood Association leadership, but three board members, (not the Presidents) will screen the questions submitted for duplicates and for appropriateness.
It was going to be a surprise, but I guess now is a good time to reveal that a card will be drawn at random from all those submitted on Monday night, and that lucky person will receive a really nice door prize donated by one of our local businesses. The question on the winning card will not be revealed for the drawing - just the person's name.
Hope to see you on Monday!
