Candidate Forum Cancelled

The Takoma Voice candidate forum scheduled for Sunday, October 18 has been cancelled to encourage community members to attend the memorial open house for Ruth Abbott at 7416 Holly Avenue. (If you plan to attend, be aware that it is a potluck.)

The Voice staff is preparing a questionnaire for candidates, which we will publish online in lieu of the forum.

If you have any pressing questions for candidates, please send them to We will be sending out our questionnaire on Sunday evening.

Thank you

    Is it being rescheduled?

  2. We hope so! But, it is not up to us.
    We suggest you contact the Voice editor, Eric Bond:

  3. I will try to reschedule the forum for next weekend. I will need to check with the candidates to find out availability. We may not be able to televise it, but I think that we can pull a forum together.
    I had to make a snap decision based upon information that I had received from candidates. We will do our best to hold a public discussion of community issues.

    It’s the Takoma Voice candidates forum. Who else is it up to?
    [Other people and factors include: the candidate’s schedules, the availability of cable tv time and personnel, the availability of a room, and so forth. — Gilbert]

    Candidate forum back on
    Hey Gil — I heard the forum has been rescheduled for Sunday night, 7-8:45 pm. True?
    We heard the same thing. We’re waiting for the official announcement. – Gilbert
