Mayoral forum set for April 14
There will be a Mayoral candidate forum conducted April 14 at 7:15 p.m. in the Slaton High School auditorium.
Doors will open at 6:45 p.m. and the attendees will need to be seated by 7.
All four candidates for mayor: Clif Shaw, Jessie Perez, Jacob Parker and John Gatica, have been invited to attend.
The moderator will be Steve Evans, Lubbock County Republican Party Chairman.
Each mayoral candidate will be given two minutes to introduce themselves, and will be asked the same eight questions, which they will be given two minutes to respond.
Questions will come from the in-house audience, who will be given a note card to write one question for the candidates.
The most common seven questions will be asked, then for the eighth question, an audience member’s name will be drawn, allowing them to ask their own question.
The Slatonite will also email the candidates questions to include as part of its forum round up. The Ward IV candidates – Brad Gaydos, Valarie Cubit and Frank Cisneros, will also have their own forum with questions sent by the paper.
