The six remaining candidates vying for three seats on the Moab City Council will meet together, face to face, in the race’s first candidate forum at 7 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 7 in Star Hall.

The League of Women Voters is hosting the event, which will spur conversation from the candidates on some of Moab’s hottest issues, along with each candidate’s platform and record. The Times-Independent will cover the event and provid race coverage in the leadup to the Nov. 5 elections.

All six candidates will be participating at Star Hall, on Monday night from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m.

After opening statements, candidates will field questions chosen by the league, each with two minutes to respond. A league representative said that candidates would also be available in the lobby for audience interaction after the event.

Doors will open at 5:30 p.m for the event.
