Where: Bountiful City Hall 790 S 100 E Bountiful, UT
When: July 20, 2017
Here is the letter from the League of Women Voters with more information about the event:
“The League of Women Voters along with the city of Bountiful has agreed to host a Meet the Candidates event on July 20th that provides you the opportunity to meet and greet the audience as they arrive, and also to allow you to express your thoughts and opinions in a series of questions in a more formal environment.
Questions will be suggested by members of the audience, and we also invite you to provide us with questions / topics you feel are of special interest to your neighbors and friends.
We suggest you bring any campaign literature you wish, to be placed on a table with that of other candidates. No campaign signs can be erected in the immediate surroundings outdoors.
We suggest you arrive at 6:30pm to meet and greet your voters.
At 7pm we will have the Pledge of Allegiance followed by a brief introduction by the moderator. The candidates for mayor will begin immediately following the Pledge. The candidates for council will be seated at 8pm. The procedure for both mayoral and for council candidates will be as follows: You will each have 1 minute to introduce yourself and to express your strengths and areas of interest and why you are running for this position. The moderator will then ask a question and tell you how many minutes you have to answer the question. Responses to each question will have a one-minute or a two-minute time limit, depending on the number of candidates and the complexity of the question. Each candidate will have the same amount of time to respond to a question, and the League of Women Voters will have a timer with time cards showing you how much time you have left for your response.
Each candidate will answer the questions in order, and the first candidate to answer the first question will become the last person to answer the second question. The second candidate to answer the first question will become the first candidate to answer the second question. This rotating order will continue throughout all the questions. At the end each candidate will have an opportunity to speak directly to the audience, telling why the candidate thinks he or she should be elected and ask for the audience to vote for her or him.
The League of Women Voters is a non-partisan organization that encourages informed voting, running for office, voter registration, and studying issues of importance at all levels of government.”
