Candidate Debate Forum Tonight!

By | Club Updates | No Comments
CANDIDATE DEBATE FORUM

With very strong turnout, Rocky River voted Democratic in last year’s Midterms and voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016.  Yet, turnout is low in off-year local elections, and Rocky River is left with an all Republican city council.
Election Day is November 5th! Please encourage EVERYONE you know to participate in democracy!
We hope that you’ll attend the Candidate Debate Forum tonight that is sponsored by The League of Women Voters.
Thursday, October 3, 7 PM
Don Umerley Civic Center, 21016 Hilliard Blvd.
