As you can see, so far there are nine forums scheduled (or tentatively scheduled) for the public to get to know the six candidates running for Board of Education in 2016. There are also other “private/non-public” candidate forums scheduled (I will not be listing those on this chart). To any other candidate or reader of this blog, if there are additional public forums scheduled, please let me know and I will do the best I can to update this list.

Earlier this year, I had put out the idea of a potential Community/Blogger Candidate Forum. I have to admit that with this many forums already scheduled (and I am sure more to be added to this list between now and November), I am not sure adding another one to the mix this election cycle would work. I have not totally dropped the idea, but I am wavering right now. I am planning on having the candidates back on Scott E’s Blog Talk Radio Show later in the fall to answer some additional questions. Hopefully I will be successful getting all of the candidates on-air.
