(February 15, 2002) -- Candidates for LB's 7th Council district will
take part in a public forum on Saturday morning, February 16, from 9 a.m. to noon.
Candidates Tonia Reyes Uranga, Bobbie Smith, Mike Donelon and Thomas R. Gonzalez are all expected to attend the forum at the Birney Elementary School Auditorium, 710 W. Spring St. (southwest corner of Spring and Maine).
The format includes questions from the audience (submitted on 3x5 cards to a panel of screeners who will eliminate duplicates, edit for grammar, etc.) Moderator Neena Strichart, publisher of The Signal Tribune, will read the questions to the candidates.
Each candidate gets up to three minutes for opening remarks, 90 seconds to answer each question, and a 30 second rebuttal to answers by other candidates.
After all the questions are answered, each candidate will have three minutes for closing remarks. The order for opening and closing remarks will be drawn randomly, in public, at the forum. Questions will be answered in round robin form. (For further info on the forum, contact Alan Tolkoff: email@example.com)
