The City of Columbia Heights, in partnership with the League of Women Voters ABC, is hosting two “Meet the Candidates” forums on Wed, Sept 30, for the Columbia Heights City Council and Mayoral races. A moderator will be provided by the League of Women Voters ABC with questions submitted by the community.

Due to social-distancing guidelines, an in-person audience will not be allowed, but residents can still get involved by submitting questions for the candidates here. Questions for the candidate forums are due by Tue, Sept 29.

The hour-long city council candidate forum will be first followed by a 15-minute break before the 30-minute mayoral candidate forum at 8:15 pm. Both candidate forums will be made available on Facebook, YouTube, and local government access channels (16 and 19) for viewing at a later date.
