KZMU to host city council debate Monday, Oct. 21

Note: A version of this article published in the Oct. 10 edition of The Times-Independent published with a headline that erroneously stated that the date of this event is Tuesday, Oct. 14. The date of the event is Monday, Oct. 21.

KZMU, Moab’s community radio station, will host the second discussion among the six remaining candidates running for Moab City Council and invites the public to attend.

The roundtable debate will be held from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 21, at the KZMU station, located at 1734 Rocky Road.

“This event aims to provide another platform for the public to access the ideas and opinions of our local city council candidates,” KZMU said in a press release. “The roundtable will include a public question section.”

The Rocky Road Roundtable, as the station has named it, will broadcast live from the main room of the station, where limited in-person seating will be available. Co-hosts and moderators Serah Mead, KZMU’s general manager, and Molly Marcello, the station’s news and public affairs director, will pose questions to all six city council candidates.

The Times-Independent will also provide questions to ask each candidate.

The last portion of the roundtable will be reserved for questions from the live audience, as well as those tuned in to the live radio broadcast and Facebook Live stream.

“We are offering this so that more Moab residents can get engaged and informed before filling out their ballot,” KZMU said.

Besides attending in person, locals can tune into the event live through KZMU’s Facebook page, online at kzmu.org, or by tuning in to either channel 90.1 or 106.7 FM.

“We aim to host a respectful, civil, and fair event,” KZMU said. “Those values will be emphasized from the onset and throughout the program.”
