Mayoral / Aldermanic Candidate Forums
COAL encourages its membership, partners and greater community-of-interest, to attend candidate forums, read independent analysis, assess the performance of incumbents, analyze the platforms of those aspiring to hold office, talk with friends and engage in meaningful discussion – all towards casting informed votes for Mayor, Clerk, Treasurer, Alderperson, and Police District Council Member.
If an officeholder is running unopposed, we must still question, challenge and make demands of them for the next term, soliciting commitments that can be used to assess their performance over the next four years.
Voting is our voice.
Please see other election-related information. Additionally, of note there is a faith-leaders townhall to discuss policing and violence prevention on January 31st, and an interesting event to honor the 50th Anniversary of The Spook Who Sat By The Door film scheduled for February 4th.
Finally, as you’ve come to expect, you’ll be able to meet a number of candidates at COAL’s February Breakfast, focused on Empowering Communities for Public Safety and the to-be-elected for the first-time Police District Council positions.
