We're inviting parties from both sides of the issues to come make their case for why you should vote Yes or No.


We will not be hearing from candidates running for office. While we try to have a representative from official organizations on both sides of the issues, not everyone responds and not every issue has an official organization actively campaigning on behalf of that issue. In this case, we have invited Jim Edson from the League of Women Voters to provide unbiased, researched information about the issue.


Agenda:
