Following this portion, written questions submitted by the audience will be asked of each candidate.
Following the completion of these questions, each candidate will be able to answer oral questions directly from the audience. Each candidate will be given up to two-minutes to respond. No questions deemed “personal” will be allowed.
The forum will end with a three-minute closing speech from each candidate in reverse order of the opening remarks.
