6-8 pm, Tuesday, October 18
Municipal Services Center, 3600 Tremont Road
The November 8 election will be here before we know it and finding time to learn about the candidates and issues coming before voters can be a challenge.
One important local issue faces Upper Arlington voters – Issue #5 represents the Upper Arlington Schools’ proposed 6.9 mil tax levy to support operating expenses.
While this is an off-year for City Council and School Board seats, there are a number of important candidate races at the State level at play, including Governor, Attorney General, Secretary of State and State Representative, as well as nationally, including Ohio seats in both the Senate and Congress.
But never fear…thanks to Leadership UA, Upper Arlington voters can do much of their pre-election homework at one time.
This year’s Issues and Candidates Night is scheduled for the evening of Tuesday, October 18 at the Municipal Services Center, 3600 Tremont Road. Beginning at 6 pm, guests can participate in an informal meet-and-greet with candidates and representatives of the UA Schools. Then, at 7 pm, the event transitions to local issues and candidate remarks in the Council Chamber. This portion of the evening will be livestreamed on the City’s website, available by clicking here: //upperarlingtonoh.gov/city-council-city-clerk/#council-videos.
A recording of the issue and candidate comments can be viewed from the same link, by selecting the “Specialty” link for past meetings.
