League of Women Voters to Host City Council Forum

Candidates for Murfreesboro City Council will participate in a forum on June 24.

The League of Women Voters of Murfreesboro/Rutherford County, in collaboration with the Middle Tennessee Lawyers’ Association for Women and the Rutherford County Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, will host a forum for candidates running for the Murfreesboro City Council. The event will take place on Monday, June 24th, at the City of Murfreesboro City Hall Chambers, located at 111 W Vine Street, starting at 6 PM.

The participating candidates are Matt Herriman, Kelly Northcutt, Bill Shacklett, Kirt Wade, and Shawn Wright. During the forum, each candidate will have the opportunity to introduce themselves and respond to questions posed by a moderator within a set time frame.

The public is invited to attend the forum in person or watch it live on Murfreesboro CityTV. The broadcast will be available on Comcast Xfinity Channels 3 and 1094, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, YouTube, Facebook, mobile devices, and the City website: www.murfreesborotn.gov. Attendees should be seated 10 minutes before the start time, as there will be no admittance once the forum begins.

To maintain an impartial and welcoming environment, no campaign materials such as t-shirts, buttons, or signs are allowed. A question poll developed by the League of Women Voters and co-sponsors will be used, ensuring that all candidates answer the same questions. Audience participation is not allowed, but attendees will hear directly from the candidates regarding their positions on various policy issues affecting the community.
